Sew Busy

A journal of my sewing projects.

I love rompers on babies! I bought this material and pattern last summer with plans to make for Sammy. It would of been too small for him though, since it fits Jonah this year.

I'm really happy with how this turned out, and I don't think the pictures show how great it looks on him.

The pattern is no longer on the website, so I can't link to it.

I have a few more things to post when I get a minute. Posted by Picasa

Matching Shorts

Shorts to match the sunhat I made a few days ago for Jonah. Posted by Picasa


This is a cotton skirt that looks likes denim, but is really lightweight. This is the first piece of clothing I have made without a pattern.. in other words my first design! :D Actually, its pretty simple. It has a little bit a flare. I held it out for the picture, otherwise it looks like shorts since there four seams (sides, front, back). I had to re-do the waist several times. I made it too big, and it was hard to get it to fit right without a lot of extra bulk at the waist/hips. In the end, I learned a few dos/don'ts in making a pattern. Posted by Picasa
