I've been on a kick lately of making things for my little lady Lucy. It is so fun making things for girls!! I've made stuff for my boys, but beyond pants/shorts when they were little and bow ties there isn't much else. I guess I just make up for it with her!
I picked up a bunch of t-shirts at Old Navy last fall for $2 each. I chose some coordinating prints for each one planning to do a t-shirt dress and two bubble shorts.
Her "Lucy" outfit, which I adore. I just appliqued her name using a fusible web. It takes time and patience sewing that thin but it's worth it! Then the shorts I just used the "panties" pattern from a Simplicity dress pattern. Instead of adding elastic at the leg I gathered it and added a cuff.
And last week I shared her t-shirt dress (as you can see I changed the fabrics I originally set aside). The tutorial is here.
And this sweetest little dress my mom made for her. I love that light aqua floral from Tasha Noel's Simple Life line. I just finished the diaper cover to match...she's wearing this one on Sunday :)
Well there are some sweet little things I've been up to (and my awesome mom). It sure is fun the variety of things you can make with a sewing machine and fabric!
