I sewed! Not only that - I'm posting about it! And it's not even Kids Clothes Week! ha! Now that we've got that out of the way...
A few weeks ago I set out to outfit Lisi Loo for Spring. They tell me it's coming, although we've yet to see it - which is a good thing since life got in the way of my outfitting goal and I have a lot of little piles of cut-out garments and partially-completed garments but very few wearable spring clothes completed. It's supposed to warm up and I'm determined to get this wardrobe put together over the next couple weeks. First up, the new Jane Top (and Dress) from Shwin Designs.
For the first time since I started sewing for my kids, I'm setting out with a big picture attitude, as opposed to the impulse sewing I usually do. Also for the first time, I'm sewing with the clear objective to save money. I'm usually pretty thrifty when it comes to sewing, but I'm also, as I mentioned, impulsive as well as opportunist. I'm not buying any fabric, and I wasn't going to buy any new patterns...then the Garden Girl Collection was released. I couldn't choose, and once I did the math (there are three top/dress and a legging pattern included) the initial sale price was too good to turn down. The Jane Top is the first I've completed from the collection.
Kids Clothes Week is coming up again - just in time!
