Sew much fun

21 May


I have a new favorite sewing pattern, well, it’s kind of a two in one – the Charlie tunic and dress from made by Rae. It is awesome! I noticed it on Rae’s blog last week and bought the pattern.

I made one for Lucien the same day. The fabric is wax cloth J got in Gabon, it’s actually leftover fabric from a shirt he had made for himself. Lucien is freaking out that he and Daddy have matching shirts. As you can see, he loves it:


Don’t worry, I made one for Bea, too. She and Lucien called this fabric “mac & cheese,” I don’t know why but I think it’s hilarious:


They’ve both asked me to make more and since Bea is a super dress girl, I’ve got a couple fabrics picked out for dresses for her. I haven’t been this excited about a pattern in a long time. Really, I think I’m mostly excited because I can finally make something for Lucien – I think he sometimes feels left out that I can sew dresses for Bea and not him. At any rate, he’s picked out the fabric for his next shirt so expect more pictures soon – here’s a hint, it’s more Gabonese wax cloth and it’s awesome.

      Thanks. I randomly decided I wanted to learn to sew a few years ago, so I picked the cutest sewing machine I could find. Luckily, it also worked pretty well. 🙂
