Wish I could find some time to blog, but I've been busy using every spare moment to sew. We've had a kids winter pants crisis here.
Ordinary folk would just go shopping to buy longer pants for the boy, and warmer layers for the baby, but I just find everything poor quality, or too expensive, or not quite right. So I've been sewing. Not that it's all perfect quality and exactly the right size or length or colour, but it's something I find much more satisfying and engaging and enjoyable than picking up another sweat-shop produced garment from Chadvegas.
1. Exhibit A, 2. Exhibit B, 3. Exhibit C, 4. Exhibit D, 5. Exhibit E, 6. Exhibit G
Exhibits A, B and C: one-piece baby pants using a pattern from this book, sewn in baby corduroy with a cotton knit lining added to make them winter weight.
Exhibits D, E and G: for the boy child denims, cords and trackies working with some modified very simple pattenrs from this book.
And it doesn't end there. Still to come some more complex Ottobre pants and cute Cloth Kits pants for the boy child, more one-piece pants for the girl child (in yellows) and hopefully some copy cat leggings for me (when I summon the courage to attempt to sew wool mesh...).
