What I made: June

First up, I did make it to the post office so all my gifts got mailed out! Go me! 

June was a good sewing month. I made three Rey skirts, an Everyday  Skirt for me and sectional skirts for the girls. Because we all need Rey in our lives. 


The girls skirts are so long they will definitely last until they get to watch StarWars! I really love the pockets and ease of my Eveyday Skirts. I plan on making another one from cord come the fall. 

I battled with stretchy sports knit fabric and it won. Okay, I did managed to make a tennis dress and shorts each for N & Z, but there was so much swearing that I may never sew sports clothes again. But look how cute! 


What I learnt from sewing sports fabric and watching the Sewing Bee episode on active wear is that buying is money well spent. 

And finally, I sewed two Geraniums as baby gifts: a dress & a tunic. 


I really like the Geranium in knit fabric BUT the bodice needs to be longer so that under the arms isn’t so nobbly. 

Almost time to review July’s makes. Eeek!
