Sewing a smock for Sammi
Before I say a darn word about sewing this post is my 1,251st post.
I found this fabric at Joanns and I have been wanting to make Sammi a little dress of some sort.
I HATE making clothes, it is pretty much always a sewing fail for me.
And as you can see by the first set of bloomers here, it didn't go well this time either.
Altogether it's not great, but it's not horrible either.
I tried to resize a vintage simplicity smock pattern and I just am no good at resizing patterns.
I clearly need a pattern if I have any hope of sewing clothes. But all the patterns at Joann are just so BLAH.
You can see it fits her. Well, barely. The neck hole is too far up and the bloomers are still low rise, despite several attempts.
Perhaps I need to start trolling the internets (and garage sales) for vintage kid's patterns. I have a few, but nothing thrilling.
And for your amusement - my girl's head. It is HUGE. 94th percentile noggin on her.
That is ALL her father's doing.
It's no wonder the poor thing is like a little weeble! All cheek and head she is.
Back tomorrow with frugal Friday. I found something GOOD at a garage sale yesterday!
