By yesterday, I had reached the point in the week where there were several things that I wanted to make for the childrens wardrobes. but nothing that I HAD to make.
Unsure what to make next, I asked Rascal what she wanted.
It was no surprise when she said that she asked for another dress, I smiled as I had just the fabric for it, but I asked if she would like to choose what material I used. We went and looked together and guess what? She picked the fabric that I had in mind- patterned corduroy with owls on it.
I will admit that I had plans to use a different pattern for this dress, but once I printed it out, I realised that the bodice was going to be too wide for Rascal. It would've been fairly easy to alter it, but I was feeling lazy and honestly couldn't see the point of risking disaster when I knew that the other pattern works so well.
Then I sort of lost motivation.
I sat and looked at the fabric and couldn't get up the enthusiasm to cut into it (does anybody else get that?) Once the fabric is cut, I am away and running, but until then its sometimes a battle to get started.
When I finally started to sew, it was an easy sew and Rascal is very happy with the results. Unfortunately, the only photos that I have of it are dodgy badly lit nighttime photos and a couple of blurry photos of an excited girl before she went to preschool this morning. Here is the best of a bad bunch.
Today, I must admit that I'm struggling to find the motivation to sew childrens clothes, I really want to get on and start making stock for market, so I think I'm going to move onto the next thing on my long list of things that need to be sewn. I have really really enjoyed the challenge of making all these clothes for my children and have loved seeing their faces when they try each new piece on.
