My daughter and friends made a face when I showed them the fabric (Jane Sussman) I was using for a little skirt set…so in the Applique scrap bin it went.
I had already made a hot pink ruffle to match the ugly fabric, so I did a little fabric shopping in my stash and came up with this:
Am I the only one who is guilty of never sewing for those we love most? It occurred to me I hadn’t sewn anything for my sweet niece, Josie, in quite some time. So I wiped up a quick skirt.
But one cannot just make a skirt–it needs a matching top. So then I make a quick peasant top.
Just need to decide whether I want to encase elastic in the neckline and sleeves or add some yummy hot pink elastic trim instead. Decision, decisions.
Meanwhile, my little guy decided he’d design a set for my Downtown Joey boys’ clothing line. What talent. LOL. It certainly was smarter to let him draw on my sketch pad than to have him spinning around on my new sewing chair and knocking over one of my sewing machines…KWIM?
He’s been home sick since the week before last…he’ll be the first one at school tomorrow, I promise.
P.S. – for some reason, my email is not coming through all day…go figure. Hopefully, it will resolve itself as I’m not computer guru!
