I'm excited to say that I have really stuck to my goal of sewing 2 items for each kiddo. I don't have pictures of everything yet, but I managed to snap a couple of iPhone shots of two dresses I have made. I purchased plain, long sleeve white shirts at Goodwill, then added skirts.
Gwen's maxi dress was made with this adorable fabric I ordered from fabricworm.com. The belt was one that was just lying around, but we are going to shop for a belt for her to wear with this dress.
Once the weather turns warmer, I can remove the sleeves or just shorten them. I could even remove the skirt entirely and add it to a tank top. Perhaps sew the long sleeve top onto a more fallish fabric.
Lela's dress I made using an old top I had that no longer fit. It used to be one of my favorite spring/summer tops - it's a wonderfully light linen fabric. I cannot wait for it to warm up just a bit so she can wear this! Again, I can remove the sleeves once we get further into summer. I left the onesie intact, so the bum is still covered.
Have you sewn any spring outfits for your little ones or yourself?? You can follow me on instagram here. Instagram a picture of your creation with the hashtag #sewingforspringbluehouse and I will feature it here on the blog!
