Here is the last of the Christmas presents that I made this year. These two for some nieces on the other side of the family. It was kind of fun to make matching dresses for a change. The theme I had for these little dresses was a vintage prairie look (that totally makes no sense to you, I know, but in my mind it did). I wanted soft, muted colors and some fun prairie-style aprons on the fronts. I hope they liked them….
Any fun sewing projects this week? Liz and I are currently taking an advanced pattern-making class this semester and are knee-deep in learning how to measure correctly (way more challenging than I ever thought–who knew measuring people was such an art, and that you “properly” take a million measurements–and then why do we never come up with the same numbers as our Master Instructor?) making “perfect” patterns and sewing test garments. And I won’t lie, feeling a bit overwhelmed….
So, tell us about your fun projects, we need some light-hearted sewing talk!
