First, the best news – Susan is getting all her stuff today! Wahoo! I told her to unpack her sewing machine and ignore the rest :)
Also, it’s day 3 of Elsie Marley‘s Kids Clothes Week Challenge, and I haven’t posted about it yet. But that doesn’t mean I’m not participating. On Day 1, I began altering my daughters’ birthday dresses (we had a rainbow theme) to make them not so rainbow-y.
I’ve had this style in mind since way back during Brown Paper Packages‘ Pattern Makeover Month. But her version turned out so much classier. These were perfect for the Rainbow Birthday party, but otherwise give off a “clown vibe”, I think. So we’re going over the rainbow. Or past it. Beyond. However you look at it, those rainbow strips are coming off. Stay tuned for results.
Yesterday was spent drafting a multi-sized pattern for the Quilted Swing Coat I made, which I now have some idea how to turn into a pdf pattern, thanks to all you knowledgeable readers. So thank you for your help and your sweet comments about the coat as well. I’d tell you it was a breeze to make, but I’m planning on selling the pattern, so that’s not great marketing, huh? (It was a breeze to make – you could totally do it!)
