|What you can't see here is her complaining MOM no one wants to see my BUTT!|
|We will call this the failed modelling session. Out of like 30 pictures, this was one of the best!|
**point of clarification.. that includes printing/pattern piecing/cutting/sewing (and the at least 45 minutes of interruptions)
So first note, I love this pattern. The testing process was extremely thorough - the sizes were checked, adjusted, and checked again, so the fit is great on them. Right now they are available in NB-5yrs, but she is working on grading/testing up through 12yrs. You all know I LOVE picking out fabrics and mixing and matching, so this pattern was right up my alley. It can be made in knits, woven, or a combo of the two. It also has a shorts and pants version, which is good in New Zealand, since it is summer, but here the shorts version is making some great PJs for my small children who always seem to be hot. I made a bunch of them during testing, and more afterwards, so get ready for a TON of pictures...
These are RUGRATS!!! (and Flannel) but RUGRATS! Or as Inara calls it "the baby show."
ANNNDD finally here are the shorts... they are like a board short length, and made super cute jammie sets for the kids.. I just did quick appliques on a couple of $2 clearance tees from Joann's. Inara was so sad that her's didn't glow in the dark like her brother's, but she said the print was too "boyish." So then this last week I found a pretty glow in the dark sky print that is just stars, so now she has been BEGGING for a pair, which as soon as I can get through the PILE of stuff on my cutting table that is screaming SEW ME! SEW ME! I will get right on them, lol.
Say hello to my cutting table... it is pretty useless at the moment... and my ironing bin is full of washed stuff to iron and cut... Okay, off to get the kids to bed so I can whittle down the to-dos!
