Yesterday, i made my first EVER piece of clothing! I was/am so proud of myself.
I have always wanted to make clothes for the girls and for myself but never ever understood the concept of sewing or sewing machines. i could read books every day about different stitches and different techniques and hemming and turning up and patterns but i just didnt grasp it atall. My lovely grandma bought me a really great sewing machine for my birthday and my lovely aunty bought me some books that teach me everything i need to know and have some really wonderful patterns in to make clothes. I picked out a bloomers pattern, my aunty came over and we had a sewing day. She was REALLY patient with me as i just didnt understand but she showed me what to do and how to work my sewing machine and by the end of the day, i had made my first pair of bloomers and now i understand alot more and feel alot more confident at sewing and using my machine.
So i made these bloomers for Elle and they are a tiny bit big for her in waist and leg length and width but she will grow! I am going to be starting on a pair for Mia this evening and then make up some bunting with the scrap material left from the bloomers. I think i have found a real passion here! i am so excited to make things up for the girls! Mia and i went to the charity shops today in hunt of more fabric and came back with some lovely floral curtains which i will use for maybe a dress and frilly pants set.
It feels like a whole new world has opened up!
Don't forget about the giveaway!
