I sewed some more! I am unstoppable!

You guys, I made four more things. FOUR. And one is reversible. And actually, I made a fifth thing–a pair of bandanna pants–but it is not for my kids so I’m not counting it.


Above is the Swing Swing Smock from Amy Karol’s Bend-the-Rules Sewing. It is EXACTLY the right thing for this fabric.



This is the Gemini Jumper from Very Baby. I bought the dandelion fabric last year (actually, my mom bought it for me) knowing that I wanted to make a reversible dress for Grace with it. I waited until the universe provided me with the exact pattern that was in my head. I think it turned out pretty good.


And my very favorite:


This is the free Oliver & S Popover Sundress.

I pulled the purple print fabric out of my stash because I needed a yoke fabric to go with the pink linen, which my sister picked up last month. I think the purple is an old curtain or something–it’s from my mom’s stash and is probably older than me. Since the pattern needed less fabric than I had, I decided to make two dresses. I’m so glad I did! But very worried about fit. I made size 2, and Grace only wears 18 months, but I was pretty carefree with the seams and might have made it too small. Luckily there is a ton more of the purple, so if I have to redo it I can.

Kids Clothes Week is over, but I hope I will find some more things to make for Sam. He needs a wardrobe as awesome as Gracie’s.

    Nice choice of fabrics, if I may say so myself! I sooo love the Popover purple fabric, I think it looks fantastic. The Gemini dress is perfect for the material from Paso Robles! The Birds look great too (didn’t I give you that as well?).

    You did good! You inspired me to actually do some projects I bought fabric for. I only finished a skirt, made a new skirt, and a small hand blanket. But I’m hoping to work more today! I loved seeing all your projects :)

    I’m totally jealous. Those dresses are so cute. You’re renewing my desire to reclaim my sewing machine (from my parents’ house in OK) and learn how to sew.
