if lil j was a girl, i’d probably be already making all sort of dresses and fancy outfit for her daily! but well, he is a boy. so my attempts at sewing for girls are minimal (and boring). so far.
made this A-line pinafore after having started sewing for 2 weeks and a little. it was for my niece, A. (we are many plane-hours away so it was quite a feat for a then 2 week old sewer) regardless, i got a pattern from a book for 2T (A was turning 4) so i had to use the best of my imagination (and i guess some common sense) to come out with a simple dress. it fit. not particularly well, but it did fit.
then, i wanted to urmm.. practise some more, and also because i would love to make something for A’s elder sister as well, i sew some more girl’s outfit. a pleated skirt for W, and a set of halter top with a simple skirt (again) for A – making full use of my 1 metre.
not much real work for these since there were such simple patterns. but those were my firsts. hopefully something more sophisticated might come out one day 😛
So I say to you: Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened. Luke 11:9-10
