The Week Ends

I must say this week has been so fun.  Although I did miss S, caring for one easy baby was a nice break.  I got so much done.  S finally has some cute summer clothes that will hopefully last her through the school year.

Here is another twirly skirt, this time I used Lisette voile and poplin for the hem and waist.  I think I like the voile and poplin better for this skirt.  It is still nice and full but drapes better than quilting cotton.

I even had time to make the teachers at S's dance camp thank you gifts.  Below are Rapunzel zippy pouches made from a Skip to My Lou tutorial, found here

Since the camp was based on Disney's Tangled, I thought it was appopriate to use Heather Ross's Rapunzel fabric.  I love how this turned out.  Heather Ross's fabrics make the simplest things look beautiful.

 And the project that I am most exicted about.  I had bought S a knit romper from target a month ago for our Disneyland trip.  It was super cheap, maybe under $5, and as cheap clothes go, cute but plain.  It was a solid hot pink with a little ice cream cone iron-on.  I really liked the cut of the romper though and decided to make s one out of nicer fabric.  I'm so glad I did because it turned out so cute.

I used the target romper as a pattern, just laid it right on top of the fabric and started cutting away.  I added bias tape for the edging of the shorts and the top. 

I'm hoping to keep the momentum going.  Both girls need sun hats.  Hmmm, maybe an Oliver & S bucket hat for S and a Made by Rae Peekaboo Bonnet for B.  Stay tuned...


  1. i loooove the romper! such a cute look on little girls...

  2. aw, what great girly clothes! love the skirt and romper. great use of the rapunzel fabric on the pouches, too...i'm impressed you gave that away! good job not hoarding it. ;)

  3. thanks all! i sorta wished i had made a paper pattern for the romper so i could replicate it. oh well. kristen, it takes another sewer to know how hard it was to cut into that fabric:).


thanks for commenting! you've made my day!
