I had such big plans for this week! The thing I realized is that I AM NOT FAST. When it comes to sewing I always think I can crank a bunch of stuff out quickly, but it’s become clear that is not the case 🙂 I am amazed at all of the beautiful clothing everyone has made for their kids this week, it is truly awesome! So what did I make?
Leggings! 9 pairs of leggings…exciting, no? Haha…I thought I would get these done in one night, maybe two-but I seriously worked on these all week! I drafted the pattern myself; store bought leggings never fit my girls right. They are both skinny with long legs, so if I buy them leggings that are long enough they are too baggy. It took some tweaking but I finally got a good fit for them both, and I made them extra long so hopefully they won’t grow out of them anytime soon.
Here’s what I didn’t get to:
A bunch of knit tops, maybe a polka dot dress (by request). I’ll probably use Rae’s Flashback Skinny Tee pattern, there are quite a few variations I have seen and wanted to try.
A couple more Parsley Pants, for my big girl. (As I write this I realize almost every thing I planned is from a Made By Rae pattern- I can’t help it, her patterns are awesome!) SO…I guess if I count the two pairs of Parsley Pants I made last week, I made 11 pairs of pants. Maybe not the most exciting thing, but these girls really needed pants! My plan now is to take one night a week to work on some non-selfish sewing until I get it all done. Which might take a while…
