I have done a little bit of sewing these past couple weeks. One pair of capri pants for Tiana are a little big so I will wait to show those until next summer. I have had this knit for a couple years just waiting to become a skirt for me. I just don't sew much for myself and am a little bit intimidated by it. However, I love how this turned out and it was fast and easy. I have some extra wide elastic that I used for the waist band which made it really easy and comfortable. I used a knit skirt that I really like as a pattern for this one.
This is a shirt that I did at the beginning of the summer but I keep forgetting to get photos of it when I wear it! I had an old white shirt that I just hand sewed some antique doilies on. I love how simple it is but also how it dresses up an otherwise boring shirt!
|I wrapped it around the back a little bit too.|
AND for Tiana's skirt... see this is why I usually just sew for her... she looks adorable in EVERYTHING! I used this tutorial (which happened to be the perfect measurements). Her and I match but not the same style. She loves it of course... anything ruffled and comfy is a hit!
I will never tire of seeing these on my patio! Tiana is our little artist, she loves drawing people and flowers! Everyday more little details are added.
