When I got married, my mother-in-law began teaching me to sew. I took a break there for a few years because, well, I had a few kids. Now, I am getting back into it. I love making clothes for myself, but I haven't really done too much for my kids because, by no fault of theirs, they are boys. Boy clothes just aren't as fun to make. When I found out my second child was going to be a boy, I was thrilled. However, to be completely honest, I had one negative thought. No cute girly clothes, again. Seriously, that was my only disappointment. The clothes. So vain, I know. I could never be sad about my sweet baby Graham.
Anyway, there are a bunch of pregnant people right now and most of them are pregnant with girls. Yay for them and yay for me! I get to make some dresses! Here are two of my favorite creations. For those of you sewing pros out there, don't scoff. I had fun making them and I completely realize that there is a better product out there...but if I made better dresses, then maybe my cakes wouldn't be as yummy!
Aren't the frills fun?
I just love the lining in this dress!
Onesie and skirt. I wanted it to be one piece, but I couldn't figure out how to attach the skirt and it still have the capability of stretching over the baby's head. I know there is elastic thread out there, but like I said, I like to keep it simple. I'll learn later.
