Sewing Something

Well...I sewed something.  And I must say getting one project complete has sort of lifted my sewing block.  I feel freed and less fretful.  There are possibilities once again.  It was too cool and rainy yesterday to have the wee Ms. Ella step out side for a photo op.  I'll photograph the top on her when I complete the pants I have planned.

Fabric: Heather Ross Tadpoles gifted to moi by this lovely lady.
Trim: Vintage rick rack in the most perfect shade of green ever! and jersey also in the most perfect shade of green ever!
Pattern:  Let's Go Out Girls Clothes ~ Japanese Pattern Book purchased here.

For the pants I will be using Burda Kids 9519 view B.  I can not tell you how much I love these pants!  My only moment of hesitation is that I will be using the green knit jersey from the above top.  This pattern calls for a woven.  I wonder is some of the gathering detail on the pant legs will be lost by the drape of the jersey. 

Last night I played around with a Marfy Pattern.  So the no directions or seam allowances part is a problem.  I cut out a practise run without adding any and it looks like its worth the effort.  Cross your fingers for me : )
PS: My Farbenmix Pattern Giveaway is here : )


  1. I love it - great work. I have some Heather Ross that I'm trying to make into a garment for Adele, I even looked through that book (which I also have) but it is still too big for her.

  2. Absolutely love it! Had to click through for a closer look. I'm falling in love with Japanese pattern books.

    And the pants pattern - perfect for my older girl.
