I think I'm going to focus on skirts & dresses for Kids Clothes Week. We are in the desert after all & summer is approaching quickly. I think easy breezy dresses & skirts are most what the girls need. I've also got another big sewing project going on this week, so I'm not sure that I'll actually be able to sew kid clothes each day, but I'm going to try. I think I may actually carry on into next week. Yep, that sounds good to me. :)
I bought this really funky patterned fabric off the clearance pile at Joann's last week. It was on sale for an additional 50% off & for some reason I liked it. I couldn't pass it up. I kept coming back to it. And so I purchased my 3/4 yard & paid $1.50 for it & brought it home. I did feel the need to explain to the employee that was cutting that I knew the fabric was weird, I just had a thing for it. Like I needed to keep my street cred at Joann's?! Dylan wasn't really very fond of it when I showed it to him...or maybe he was just annoyed that I had bought even more fabric.
Anyway, I had a vision for it & here it is. I made this dress for Sadie. No pattern. It's not perfect. There are some bumps & tucks here & there that I should really go back & fix, but I think I'm just going to leave it as is. Except after seeing it on her, I'd like to bring the hem up a few inches.
Sadie didn't think twice about the crazy print. She asked me if she could wear it today & tomorrow & the next day. I call that a success. :)
