With all of the business sewing lately, I’ve not had much spare time for fun sewing. Well, it’s all fun sewing to me but I meant solely for fun, throwing responsibility out of the window. That means…
Girly stuff! Nellie is such a girl = clothes maniac = pink dresses. I had a T-shirt that was handed down to me, in great shape but it was nothing I would ever wear, at least not in public. So, I turned it into a nightie/playdress for Nellie. I cut off the sleeves and made new, smaller ones and added side wedges of flowery darker pink for the swirl factor, then finished off the hem and sleeves with lettuce edging on the serger.
(Look at those dirty feet!! And camo shorts.)
Guess who was jealous? Yep, Josie is turning out to be a girly-girl, following quickly in Nellie’s dainty footsteps. Poor, poor, clothes-less Josie.
I had another T-shirt handed down to me that will never, no matter how hard I try, fit me in any way suitable for public consumption. Out came the scissors and a toddler dress emerged. I took it outside to where Josie was playing and slipped it over her head. I think she liked it.
