I’m very glad to find a community of like-minded sewists! I’m no stranger to sewing, having been taught as a child from my mother who used to make all our clothing. However I’ve been on a 12 or so year hiatus from garment creation, so I’m trying to wade back in and brush up my rusty sewing skills.
I decided to kick-start some serious garment construction by sewing for my daughter first (obviously I’m putting off having to address fit issues when sewing for myself!) I figured the instant gratification would make me inspired to do more. Of course it turned out not to be instant gratification (it’s very difficult to sew with a 21 month old demanding all your attention) but I took my time and I feel moderately happy with the result and I would love to share it with you all.
I know we’re in Autumn, and it’s a 3T while my daughter is only 21 months old – but I couldn’t stop thinking about it once the pattern was in my hands.
My daughter’s idea of modelling is to run around and jump – so here is an action shot!
Both the dress and bolero are too big for her (the dress is tied tight to fit the front), but hopefully by the time Summer rolls around, it will fit better!
Rather than posting too many photos, please feel free to see more photos on my blog.
Thank you for looking!
