|1 month old - first smile EVER! And I caught in on film.|
And now look at her!
|4 years old. Just as smily as ever.|
My goodness time flies. And then it dawned on me . . . I only have 6 more months to make her some school clothes. I still haven't cheated on my New Year's resolution and I'm not going to start now. Yikes, 6 months flies in the blink of an eye. So last week I made her a bubble skirt and a pin tuck blouse from the Ottobre Autumn 2010 magazine. Here's the outty out (as we call outfits in my house).
The top was made from some very pretty, but very horrible to work with poly blend rouched plaid fabric that was on super duper sale at Joann's. I adore the colors but man it was tough to sew, partially because I couldn't get anything to press correctly. Definitely won't use it again. But do you see that placket? Yes, I, Sarah Lora, made that placket. It took every ounce of sewing know-how I have but I did it.
|Dang proud of that placket!!!|
Yay! So we got a few more pieces together for the fall! I definitely want to try to make that shirt again with some regular cotton fabric. Also am thinking of making this dress for summer time dress-up. Elena will go crazy for it! She's way way girlier than I ever was! I'm also working on a spring crochet pattern that should be done very soon if I can ever pull myself away from the sewing machine. Stay tuned!
