10 years later, my kind and thoughtful husband bought me a serger for Christmas. Seriously. I was shocked and felt like a spoiled little brat. So, to make myself feel like less of a brat, I decided I needed to put this thing to good use and really learn how to make clothes.
Easter is around the corner, so I decided I would start with Easter dresses. So I made this dress (and one for Heidi too, but I didn't photogragh it....poor Heidi).
I hated it. And still do. However, the pattern I used was really great and easy to use. (If you are interested it is called the Geranium Dress.) Because the dress was a pretty fun sew, I decided to start over with the Easter dress thing and put my own spin on the Geranium dress.
Then I thought to myself, "why stop with 5 dresses in two weeks? I think I'll make another, please!"
So I bought a pattern called the Cricket Dress from Brownie Goose.
This one is just begging for a belt, am I right, or am I right? Right? Right? Right? (Groundhog's Day anyone?)
Then I decided I needed to make myself a shirt. So I made a pattern out of a shirt I already owned, and called it a day....I may or may not have been living in this shirt for the past 5 days...not kidding.
Like how I cropped off my make-up-less face? ha!
And just this morning, I found a new designer who makes children's apparel patterns, and bought this pattern with hopes to whip up this adorable romper in the next day or so.
I think I may have some of my mom's seamstress genes in me after all - although I don't see wedding dressing coming out of my sewing room ever - I am honestly have SO much fun sewing for my girls. Who knew?
