I do love finding fabric, vintage sewing patterns and sewing notions in my thrifting adventures because I so love to sew. I haven't done much sewing lately but hope to get back into it as the yard sales, rummage sales and such slow down as the seasons change. I really would like to try to make another dress from a vintage pattern (have only made one so far), I only started making clothes a couple of years ago and had to teach myself through trial and error. I also love to sew for my great nieces (the red headed girls). So I thought I would share a few of the things I have made.
First up is the first Dress I ever made (used a new vintage pattern, I had not sewn the buttons on yet):
These are a few things I made for the red headed girls:
|Bathing suit pattern from Sew Beautiful|
And here are a few projects (some using vintage linens):
|Made these out of hankie's that I found at a yard sale|
|I love these!|
|Pattern from Sew Beautiful that I edited to use as a bib (back view)|
|The little red headed girl in Halloween costume (skirt) I made!|
I'm not the best seamstress in the world but I sure do enjoy sewing for myself, my home and my precious red headed girls.
