Good day, my dear readers! 😉
I’ve sewn a number of things recently, and thought I’d show you some of them!
First I have this maxi dress that I made. I actually made it out of one of my old dresses. I used the Pixie Faire Maxi Dress pattern that I got free through a Freebie Friday! I added a couple more skirt tiers, though, than the pattern said.
I also made the tank top underneath by altering Pixie Faire’s free T-shirt pattern. (Though they have a free tank top pattern as well)
I’m thinking of doing a tutorial for Julie’s hairstyle. Would you like one?
Next up is this leotard that I made for Clara with this pattern. I made the front with two pieces of fabric, instead of one piece with appliques. I also used fabric, folded over and zig-zag stitched, instead of fold-over elastic, and it seemed to work fine. I like how it turned out!
Hmm, I think another Clara Doing Gymnastics post is coming due, don’t you? 😉
And lastly I want to show you the Teagan Top I made using Project AG Runway’s pattern. You should really check out her blog! She blogs about sewing, mostly, and has already posted a few great (free!) patterns!
Mine seemed to turn out a little small. The straps were too short, so I sewed on some extra fabric, and now they lay a bit funny, but it was my first try at the pattern, and I had tried to alter the pattern slightly, so the mess-ups may well be my fault XD . I also used velcro instead of snaps. But it’s still a super cute top!
I hope you enjoyed!
Which clothing item that I sewed was your favorite? Do you want to see a tutorial for Julie’s hairstyle, and another post with Clara’s gymnastics?
P.S. What do you think of my Gravatar profile picture? It’s the pic of Clara that you see when I comment. I’ve had it a while, but am wondering if it looks odd or good. Honest opinions or ideas are appreciated!
P.P.S. Is anyone doing Camp Nanowrimo in July and need a cabin member? I want to participate in July, and would love to be in a cabin with some fellow bloggers.
