ruffle neck cowl, O + S Sailboat Skirt and Toddler jeggings made by me didn't quite make it into the flickr pool on time, but this encompasses my girl signature look, for sure. We are currently adopting a baby, so life is UPSIDE down trying to get ready and after receiving our approval letter, I totally trickled off my sewing and went to revamping their new bedroom! Forgive me! As you can tell, I mostly design and sew for my son, Cai. I am inspired by making simple, comfortable clothing, with simple modern details. This season I learned how to die fabric, hand embroider some James Dean inspired glasses on a down sized v-neck, refashioned a men's henley into a hoodie henley with pockets, and made a stuffed marshmellow vest! It was awesome! Today, I want to share more about my Henley refashion from men's henley to boy henley hoodie with pockets.
baggies. Down sizing clothing is one of my favorite things to do for my son! It's so easy to take a huge "husbandy" shirt and in under 30 minutes make a boy shirt. I seriously giggle at seeing how shrunk down the shirt gets! Oh, I know I'm not the only one! ha!
Blank Slate Basics Vintage V-neck. I've used this on multiple projects, and I keep thinking Melissa is going to make me give her gift back, because I would have gotten my money's worth out of it, for sure! Thank you, Thanks, Thanks! Using your basic t-shirt block (or a current t-shirt that fits), position it so that you maintain the current button placket. I thought it might look odd keeping the whole placket, but it really doesn't on a toddler. Win-win for us!
my little blog and say hi! It's been a pleasure to be here again! Thanks again and have a Happy Thanksgiving!
