Play Clothes

Just a short post today because I have laundry to hang up on the line. I made a set of play clothes for Emily today. Its the same pattern I used for the Zoo shirt. I was afraid that the pants would be too big but they fit just right!

It's Clearing Up!

So tomorrow Emmy and I will be going on a field trip to the Louisville Zoo! This is very exciting for me because the zoo is one of my favorite places! I remember waaaaaay back when Aunt Driddle, Mom, NeNaw, Uncle Monkey and my brother and I would pile into our pile of junk and go to the zoo.

Of course I am the one with my tongue sticking out. I am super classy.

So Emmy has to wear an orange shirt to the zoo. And can she wear just any shirt? NO! I just had to make her a brand new one!

Am I the best mommy or what?
So Driddle sent Emmy some shades of purple fabric and said that it might look good as a fiesta skirt. Well here it is!

And I will never make another until I get a ruffle foot!

Well I started this on Thursday, but its now Friday. I have to go to bed cause tomorrow is the ZOO!

Its starting to clear up!

We have had a full day of sunshine here and I have celebrated by opening the doors and windows and sewing!
 I sewed this pattern up and unfortunately it is way too small for me. Anyone a size 8-10 out there?


Well I found out yesterday that some of the kids at school were making fun of my daughter's clothes. So I made her up this little dress last night to make her feel better. Its dark pink her favorite color.

And I went fabric shopping today! here is what I got!

Poka Dots Are Raining Down

I whipped this dress up in about a day and a half. I used this pattern from my Great Grandmother Martha's stash.

I am afraid that she might have been a bit heaver than I am at this point because the bodice was larger in the bust and waist than her other patterns. I took in about 2 inches on each side but I didn't make it more fitted because I like a little room to move around. I think i will call this dress 'Poka Dot Addiction'.
