i have been trying to post this for over a week. . .please, blogger, let me post again! whatever i did to make you mad, i'm so sorry! it won't happen again!
i did it.
i made her a dress! after 3 mostly successful skirts
and a pair of pants
for him i got on with it and made a dress. i'm totally proud of it. and the girl in it, too!
her grandmother left me a little stash of fabric last time she was here. so, that's what i used. i made the little pocket out of a linen scrap and did a bit of embroidery on it.
i got the pattern here
. and how awesome is it that you can get sewing patterns on etsy and ebay for FIVE bucks. love it. love. IT.
i had a few snags with this pattern, but i believe it was me, not the pattern. i'm a newbie and a bit of a nervous sewer so i get tripped up easily.
also completed this week :: rocket shorts!!!!!! i have yet to get a final fitting and photo of that, but it's to come!
now i'm off to blog surf and be inspired by all the crafty mamas out there. anyone else as excited as i am for Amanda Soule's new book
