Few from last year

Last summer I was making Aanya a nice summery wardrobe. There are so many cute girl dress patterns that I have a hard time chosing which one to do. One such pattern is Summertime Dress. The designer is from a sewing forum I frequent and she is just as sweet as this dress is! I bought the pattern right as it came out and made the dress. It is adorable. I'm sad that it is too small for her now. I plan to make at least 2 more this summer.



(ignore the unfinished hem. this was try it out time)

Aanya had this simple knit frock which is way too cute on her. I traced the lines on paper and just recreated the pattern. It actually fits and looks cool! I made her 2 of these last year. Bonus points with this one because she can wear these as tunic over her jeans this year. Yay for knits!






I haven't done much sewing since last post. I have been tasked with coming up with pirate costumes for 7 kids from DS's Odyssey of the Mind program. It's not much, just vests made of felt but this project is actually preventing me from doing any sewing at all. There's so many things cut out and ready for attention but I am preventing myself from working on anything else. I will be glad when they're done.
