Hi you guys,
So, KCW turned out to be less “productive” then I had planned. I mean I got to sew a lot, but couldn’t find the time for picture taking and blogging making 😉
One of the things I wanted to do this year was to sew some patterns I own and that have “low life expectancy” (the ones that are at the last size available for my children), especially the ones I never tried before.
I think it is a good policy to try all the patterns that I own, at least once before my kids grow out of them, don’t you think?
…I have a “thing” for sailors 🙂
Well, not for the actual sailor-person, but more for the sailor style, so when the “Anchors Aweigh” from Peek-a-Boo patterns was released (last year I believe), I couldn’t resist it, nor the “twin” dress that I have yet to sew for the little Miss.
The pattern is really nice and although I was confused by some parts of the instructions, it came together pretty quickly and smoothly. I finish attaching the collar with bias binding, instead of following the instructions stated, and realize it worked well for this particular shirt because the fabric was very light weighted and didn’t bulk much.
The shirt is cotton-linen blend in gray and white, with grosgrain accents.
The shorts are very light denim, almost like chambray, and are from the same pattern.
He looks so cute in his new outfit that now I can honestly say that I have a “thing” for one particular sailor ❤
“You see, there is a sailor that stole my heart. He calls me mommy “
Hugs and kisses
