The must recent project was a pair of leggings for my 2 year old niece which I made from a small tshirt which sports a zebra on the front. The zebra now goes across and around one leg, while the other leg is plain white. I was hoping to get some of the print on each leg, but the shirt was to small to give me much choice in placement. I am really happy, they turned out really cute!!
I also made a a layered ruffle skirt made from parts of 2 different bed skirts, one battenburg lace and the other flowered. This took much longer than I thought it would, but I have since learned an easier way of construction a ruffle skirt, so next time it should be easier.
My next project is this adorable little tank top made from a lightweight sweatshirt that sported a pretty rose. I used bias tape around the underarm curve, leaving enough to tie them into bows or knots at her shoulder. This one was really easy to make.
The final piece is a dress made for my granddaughter out of a beautiful vintage bedsheet. Unfortunately, she hasn't grown as fast as I thought she would. It looks like it may fit next year. I made it from a pattern, which I can't find right this minute or I would give you the number. It is a simple aline jumper with buttons at the shoulders. Isn't she just the cutest thing ever?
I have a pile of clothes my 14 year old daughter has outgrown, and I am trying to decide which one to turn into toddler attire next. Till next time, Fran AKA The Barefoot Seamstress.
