I've recently gotten on a clothes-sewing kick. I'm not sure why, other than seeing some cute kids clothes being made on some different craft blogs.
Sometimes people I meet are surprised that I like to sew and I sometimes get asked, "How do you do it all?" The truth is that even though I manage to sew and make things, there are other areas that sometimes get neglected. Like cleaning. I am not a slob, but I have slightly more tolerance for clutter than the average person. So I'm guessing that my house is probably dirtier than yours. I meant to take a photograph of my sewing room as proof, but totally forgot. Since I'm in Edgefield today I couldn't really remedy it. Whenever I sew a lot, my craft room rapidly degrades into a total disaster that looks like a fabric store threw up.
Anyway...on to the photos! First up, more shorts for Judah! I loved this madras fabric and have another color waiting to be cute. The shorts are a little on the snug side, so the next pair I'm going to cut a little bigger. And try to match the stripes a little better.
since med school, but I was thinking it would be nice to have another fun summer dress or two. Plus I have been wanting to attempt to conquer my fear of patterns. Here is my first attempt. I wore it with a sweater to church, but it was so comfy I left it on the rest of the day. (And yes, I am rocking a headband. Haven't worn one of those in years.)
This was my first time successfully working with knits, and I'm excited about making another knit dress or two to wear this summer. I'll keep you posted. I did also make a tunic-looking dress I'm going to use as a swim suit cover this summer, but didn't photograph it yet. Hopefully you will see more pattern/garment sewing from now on....
