Ok, I've done it! 4 months of not buying new clothes. The not buying was not the hard part, as I usually shop for clothes when I'm in desperate need for some :) Hard part was getting organized, find time and start sewing ;) But I did it! And now I can't and won't stop. It's so much fun! Here's what I've done since last posting:
A bamboo-cotton shirt for my daughter. Pattern is from Ottobre design 3/2003 number 20 velour shirt. But I used this thick and soft knit fabric and didn't do the embroidery as the fabric has flowers already. I also put snaps instead of a zipper. The size is a bit large, but the fabric will probably shrink a bit more.
Then I did these Three seam split crotch pants (link for pattern and directions) for my daughter of the wool sweater I showed earlier.
This is a nightgown I got as a present a year ago. I do not like long nightgowns as I get tangled up in them. So I cut the hem short and took in the side and sleeve seams. Now I've got a shirt and ½m fabric to use for something else. I might do something with the neckline and cuffs as they are quite boring and tight.
This is it then. Thank you all for your comments and inspiration! And special thanks to Nikki for making this all possible! You will see me at Burda Style and when I have a bit more time to blog I'll join here again :)
