I cut them out tonight to sew later.
I am bringing MY fabric to our Lodge in the woods. And every minute I get a chance, I am sewing the rest of my skirts and pants!! for ME! I am not bringing sewing for anyone else! ;o)
This (above) is the kind of yarn? they keep bringing me home for my birthday. Only one skein of each. And well, its not very inspiring to me! ;o) I can't even remember what i used it for? Maybe it was a kitten blanket? For the new kitty named Bunny!
In the meantime Kitty, now 15 pulled out more tops that she said needed up-cyclyng. Above she matched the nautical top with the blue fabric I bought
This sparkly top had a front lining underneath. So I could attach the skirt to that in the front. She picked this fabric above to match. This fabric was purchased for my birthday last year. I wasn't really a fan. So I was happy to see it used!
This is a black polo top, she chose the fabric above to match. This was a print I bought just because it was lovely and on sale. impulse shopping- my bad habit.
And last but not least the blue polo top and fabric she matched. I bought that fabric for me. And I'm also making a skirt out of it for me!
The finished results! Dress #1
I added a strip of binding from the fabric to the shirt sleeve too.
Dress #2 So pretty!
Kitty has very good fashion taste. I call her my barbie because she's always dressing up looking so fashionable!
Dress # 3
photos by her sister Faith
Last but not least! Dress # 4. No trim on the sleeves, its sleeveless!
I wanted to make Kitty a little jacket to go with her sleeveless tops/dresses. I found this Bolero pattern. (vintage) Can't recall the big4 name or number. Anyhoo, this turned out so cute. You might have seen this knit fabric last year on girlcharley?? The sleeves are not lined but the bodice is. The pattern suggested lining the sleeves?
After these photos I put 2 small flower bouquet appliques on either side in the front, with a piece of ribbon under. So she could tie a pretty bow in front to keep it closed. I'll get a picture and post next time
I love it! It used up all the fabric I had in this print.
I think it was almost 2 yards.
In the mean time I'm making my son-in-love a surprise. First a muslin. I want to get his size perfect!
My sweet Faith's new fascination is jelly fish!? I searched for fabric. Of course it was woven. This top above is a vintage 90s pattern. unisex. I combined the fabric I could afford to make 3 shirts.
Three different fabrics! Only 2 on this shirt.
This was another fabric above Faith chose. It was on sale. She likes anything green.
I finally broke down and bought some buttons and labels to put on my makes. Now could I just remember to do so!!!
I also personalized a label that says "Always remember how much I love you", with 2 blue birds.
This was the 2nd jelly fish shirt I made Faith. I guess Kitty didn't photograph the 3rd shirt.
Now could you say no to this face when she asks you to make her another "Hepburn"???
I couldn't! LOL!
Happy Creating!! (((HUGS))) God Bless!
Thanks for visiting!!
