Stopped by JoAnn Fabrics at lunch time today and picked up 1/2" elastic and some fusible interfacing. So, when I got home I sewed the ric rac on the shorts, threaded the elastic through the waistband, and started working on the top. No work tomorrow, so hopefully I can finish the outfit. It has been such a long time since I've done any clothing construction - luckily this wasn't too hard (although it has buttons, which means buttonholes). I'll have to take my time so I don't mess anything up.
