sewing day

Another fun day of sewing yesterday! This time we had two sewing machines, so we were both able to work on our projects at the same time. Charis made a beautiful pink dress for her little girl, using a pattern from 1965. The collar is so cute (sorry no picture, but we may enlarge the pattern so I can make Aubie one)! This is what I made. I have been wanting to make a skirt for Aubie with this pattern for a while, but I just never seemed to get around to it. We improvised on the pattern a bit and came up with much better results from what it would have been. It really helps when you have Super Seamstress guiding your steps : ) (I am sure she would not want to be called this, but she is.) We are planning on doing this once a month. I am so glad to know that I will get one day to sew each month at least.

I love Aubie's hair in this picture. She's just so adorable.

There is something about Aubie that looks like David in the picture. I never really see that! Cute skirt; cutie pie!

I can contribute absolutely nothing to this discussion...unless you count, "my mom has a sewing machine."
