Yesterday was my day to "Occupy Your Sewing Room" :)
It was fun to set aside a day to get some projects done.
I made this little jacket for my youngest granddaughter Evie.
I used "Little Uptown Girl" pattern by Make It Perfect.
The pattern comes with all the sizes from 0 to 5
which is awesome
but I have to admit (I'm lazy) and I don't enjoy tracing
all the pattern pieces onto wax paper before I can actually cut.
The way the pattern is done there are pieces on both sides
of the paper so you can't cut into it even if you wanted
the pattern for only one size.
It went together fairly quickly, but this pattern is for an intermediate to advanced sewer.
You have to have some knowledge on how things go together and how to finish certain things.
At the end of the project you sew both the outer
jacket and the lining together.
Then you pull the jacket to the right side
through one of these tiny sleeves.
It kind of reminded me of childbirth.
I love the finished project! I can't wait to see Evie's little face
smiling back at me from under that hood!
I have to cut the entire pattern again in the next size up
for little Ms. Sofie :)
Last year I made this fun Christmas apron for my daughter.
And yesterday I made this sassy Christmas apron for my daughter in law :)
I used the "Pretty Ditty Apron" pattern by Jamie Christina.
It's such a figure flattering apron.
I just might need to make one for myself next.....
It makes me happy to think of them making breakfast on Christmas morning wearing
these fun aprons :)
All in all it was a productive day!
I still have so much to do!
Hopefully I'll have more to show you tomorrow because tonight
is the Friday Night Sew In!
Are you playing along????
