I'm two weeks in to Summer, and I've been indulging myself with sewing and spending time with my son. Lately, I've been doing a lot of pattern sewing. Perhaps I need to brush up my skills a little, or perhaps I've found some awesome patterns and fabric that I love. Either way, it's been a fairly blissful sewing period for me.
I used a pattern to make these digs for a party in Waikiki.
These hula outfits I made for a group of kids going to Japan. The boys' shirts were from a pattern, but I whipped up the girls' dresses from one of my own patterns.
I also had some time to do a refashion.
I found this polyester golf shirt at an awesome thrift shop (Holy Nativity) for $1.50. I've had my eye on it for a while, but only decided to buy it when it went on sale for half off. I guess I'm too cheap to spend $3.
Luckily I discovered this awesome pattern, which I've used to make two pairs of pants, shorts and this awesome skirt.
My photographer is out of town, so I had to sneak this shot in the dressing room at Nordstrom. I would say that it was pretty resourceful of me.
I have a few more refashions in the works for this summer. Hopefully, I'll be posting soon.
Until next time...
