Cheer Up Dress


Another little dress made from an upcycled T-shirt from Goodwill. 

I love the way it turned out but a little word to the wise. 

If you are working with older knits that have been washed a lot and are super soft and worn. You know the kind you love but are sooo not good for sewing. 

I have made two dresses out of these kind of shirts in the last few days that were meant to sell but because the needle made little tiny holes along the seam they unfortunately are not sale worthy. 
Back to work, but this time with newer, better knits. 

Oh well, the bugs need some frocks too I guess.

Hello Again!

It has been awhile, yes, I do know this is a fact.

 I am so sincerely sorry for that and I do hope I haven't lost to many of you during my, well I guess you could call it an extended absence from the blog world. 
Not to mention the fact that I haven't done much sewing the past few (long) months! 
BLAH,BLAH,BLAH
Okay enough excuses......I am back to say I have new frocks to show you and that makes me a happy sewing mama!

Here is just a little peek at what is to come and I can't wait to show you all what I have been working on because I feel like you, well, you just might really like it.....I know I do.






Avery bug was more than happy to show off some new clothes (she hasn't had to do this in awhile so it was fun) and maybe she even wants to keep them for herself.
I purchased this fabric last summer and I really loved the large print on it. So fun for a little girl. But I just couldn't quite figure out what to do with it.  This little frock came to me this morning...about 6am over an apparently inspiring cup of joe.
I have a lot more to share and hopefully this weekend will bring some good weather so we can get outside and snap some pictures of our new clothes.
Oh, and did I mention they will all be available to purchase at an upcoming event?

More about that later. 

So glad to be back doing what I love most!
