What I Made: April & May

Looking through my photos I apparently sewed a lot of gifts, of  which I only managed to mail two. Maybe June is the month I make it to the Post Office. Ho Ho Ho! 

For Zoey and Nomi I made them new summer pjs inspired by Sarah & Duck (quack), and some shorts made with double gauze. 


I made the most beautiful Dahlia dress for myself in double gauze and I need to make more. I need a whole wardrobe full of Dahlias. 


One of the girls took this photo in IKEA because when you make an amazing dress you head to IKEA!  I also sewed another Everyday Skirt, this time in a Charlie Harper penguin print as I am The Mother of Pingus. 


I’ve been using up my fabric stash to sew some gifts: t-shirts, skirts and a nightshirt. 


Looking back I sewed more than I thought I did but wish it has been more things for ME. I have a new dress pattern for Nomi and Zoey to try out this month, they need another set of summer pjs and some more shorts. Oh and tennis outfits.

What I Made: March 

Patchwork pjs for Z & N. I cut these out before we went on holiday: trying to best use up the knits I had and they have come out pretty well. Next up on the pj front for the girls will be shorter summer ones. Last year Z wore her winter/fall pjs all summer long. Hoping to tempt her with some lighter Sarah & Duck themed pjs – because it gets quite hot here! 

  
I LOVE these two items: Lisel + Co Maritime T-shirt and Everyday Skirt. The tee is in Cloud 9 knit (yellow stripes) and the skirt in soft cord I got on sale. I plan on making more of both. The skirt has the most perfect pockets I’ve ever come across. Roomy and not bulky. 

I did rush to finish the tee (not happy with the hem) as I wanted to wear them out on a galavant but so so pleased with them. 

Nomi took this photo. 

  

I’m starting to sew up some thank you gifts. This tee in Cloud 9 stripes & Birch Fabric Charley Harper giraffes is darling. 

  
This is Zoey’s picture of my new outfit. 

  

Pingus in there new pjs and eating Easter chocolate. 

  
A knit skirt for me. Again, cut out before we went on holiday and took an hour or so to sew. 

 
Not a bad amount of items sewed for March, especially considering that my machine was in the shop being serviced for two weeks!
