A Summer of Sewing

Thinking back to Summer sewing projects...

Pretty as a Picture Dress from Handmade Beginnings

A vintage sheet project - from this pattern (in French, but it all came together nicely)
A Lazy Days Skirt, sized down
Another Lazy Day's skirt
Appliqued bodysuit with Quick Change Trousers from Handmade Beginnings

Baby Kimono top from Weekend Sewing
A dress for Miss Julia
Another kimono top from Weekend Sewing - this time sewn with a vintage sheet

 A gift for my niece, inspired by this tutorial

It looks as if I've neglected the one boy in the family..but he did receive three pairs of handmade shorts (little boys are just hard to catch to photograph though, aren't they?)

And now, I'm looking for some inspiration...and time, for some Autumn wardrobe additions.


  1. What a great collection of work :)

  2. what adorable the clothes...charming...

    i got the instructions for the dish cloths off of YOU TUBE...i just put in "how to knit dish rags" and up it came...
    let me know if you try it...

    happy to stop by and happy to follow


  3. What a productive (and adorable) crafty summer you've had! It must be so satisfying to dress your children in clothes you've created yourself.

  4. Oh I LOVE that bunting quilt! So cute!! What a lucky niece :)
