Our little Saarah is turning SIX August 1st. It’s hard to believe. How time flies. Of course, that means that I had to make an outfit!! 🙂 I made her a dress from the Sue and Blue magazine (a Dutch magazine). While I do like the way it turned out, I do not recommend this pattern for any beginning sewers. The instructions are lousy. It doesn’t even really help with cutting instructions. Since it’s been really cold here in Ohio for July (down to the 50s at night and only in the 70s during the day), I thought it needed a little cover up. I made this little jacket from the BizzKids Summer magazine. I am not too keen on how the collar is “ruffled” at the neck, but still think it looks cute. Well, I know our little Princess (that’s what “Saarah” means) will look great in it. I digitized and stitched the little bear on it to somehow match the roses on the dress. Then I found out that she is having a bear birthday party. That’s what you call Grandma intuition! 🙂
Have you seen all my new designs? I have been very busy!! Hope that some of them will come in handy for your summer, fall, and soon Christmas sewing.
Thanks for stopping by and God bless.
