Little Miss Princess is wearing Butterick 3714 in "Barbie Pink", and the jacket is Simplicity 2683 (bamboo knit). The pink is from Joann's, which makes it machine washable (priceless for a 6 yr old!). I found a tutorial online for the flower embellishment, and I'm so glad I made the jacket, since it's 30 degrees outside today (1st day of Spring, yeah right...)
Daddy is wearing Simplicity 7030, in black Ralph Lauren shirting (from Ressy's co-op). It's the umpteenth time I've made it, but he loves having shirts that fit correctly. I was supposed to make him a matching tie, but there was no time. I started the shirt last night and finished it this afternoon! (I know you can't see it, but isn't this a great picture?)
When I saw that belting, my mouth opened before my brain could stop it. "Check this out! It reminds me of Hannah Montana!" Those were really the only 2 words she heard, and immediately clasped her hands in front of her and assumed the begging position. "Please. Please. Please. Please. Pretty Please. It will look so awesome, Mom. Pleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaasssssssssssse?"
Oh, and she also wanted her hair to look like Taylor Swift. OMG. If she's 6 and like this now, what do I have to look forward to???
So, that's 3 things I made in this post. None of them for me. Neither was my last post. I think I'm overdue for a little "Selfish Sewing Time"! And there is a fun new blog/sew along called Friday Night Sew-In and it's hosted by Handmade by Heidi. I usually find myself inside and sewing on a Friday night, so why not? Last night I was able to get DH's shirt all cut out and the front/back/button/yoke parts assembled by 11pm. Not bad for a Friday night!
