... or, Back-to-school-outfits.
... or, Yes, I am still here!
... or, Yes, I still do sew!
... or, Yes, we have been having a great summer!
Can't believe it's been over a month that I have posted last. I am greatful, that once in a while people still stop by and take a look around here, on this non-happening blog.
I have been making quite a few more skirts and dresses for my girls. I will spare you the pictures, since summer sewing is over anyway and instead show you the girls' new Back-to-school outfits. They have also been called "back-to-bed" and "running-with-the-bulls" Outfits....
For these, I was inspired by: the training pants of my gymnastics coach, when I was about 7 years old. Look:
http://www.fabric.com/, combined with some owl-jersey from Joann's. No patterns were used, just did some eyeballing of their current size. Instead of the conventional elastic waist I made a wide and comfy yoga-band. Similar to how I made my summer skirt. The girls love it.
Just three more weeks of summer, then school will start again! Luckily, we are still having the most beautiful weather: nothing less then mid 80s all the time! I am loving it.
I will be back soon (Promise!) with some pictures of a quilt I am working on right now.
