took a turn and its been full steam ahead. Children's clothes are fun because they are fast. In an evening I can turn out a finished item.
The patterns are from garments bought at Goodwill and taken apart. This requires a bit more finesse when cutting but provides better instruction. I can see exactly how the pieces fit together and how the finished product should look.
Within the recycle/reuse theme there have been great ideas for children's clothes from t-shirts. After making 2 t-shirt quilts for L. I still have some t-shirts left.
This dress was bought at Goodwill...and this dress, (the t-shirt is L.'s Middle School) was the result.
The dresses are great but there was also a lounge pant tutorial using t-shirts that came from Pinterest. Quick and cute!
Not only are these clothes fast and relatively easy, but I'm learning so much about my sewing machines and garment construction, and loving it. My first items are a bit rough but practice makes 'almost' perfect.
Please take a minute and share a sewing tip, website you find helpful or a pattern that is your favorite.
