On another note, I have been using my new sewing space quite a bit lately. And no, it's still not finished or even really fit to be seen yet. I'm waiting for the hubby to buy me some cork board. Still waiting... of course it will all come together after I get that cork board.
I always enjoy sewing girl's skirts, as they are so quick and easy and finished in one sitting. No danger of being added to the unfinished project pile. So I thought I would whip up a little wintery skirt for Miss Violet. Her wardrobe was sadly lacking in the winter skirt department, so of course we had to do something about that.
So I found some thrifted wool and an embroidered doily that had seen better days. No guilt about cutting into this piece of embroidery.
So quick to sew up, and then I added the embroidered pieces in the form of pockets, integrating the embroidered edge to save myself sewing a pocket seam. I added a machine blanket stitch to the edges - I do love that function! All very homespun looking, but I do believe that there's no use pretending to be something you're not. And home sewn clothing should indeed look a little different to the mass produced, mainstream clothing we see everywhere.
A little girlier than the typical jumpsuits Violet has been subjected to this Winter. Though it is nice to dress up our little ones every now and then isn't it?
I think I may be suffering from sewing favouritism. Please tell me that I'm not the only one? After the baby leggings are done, I think it's time to make a few things for the other two.
