DIY nautical hooded jacket

When I’ve sewn the girls dress with the school supplies I found remains of french terry fabric I used for a hooded jacket. Not enough for another jacket for myself, but enough for a little girls hooded sweat jacket.

I’ve made 6,7 or 8 hooded jackets for myself but this small jackets are way more complicated hehe

I started with an very easy jacket, Nothing special! I used the dress fabric as lining for the hood.

Here my first jacket for Miss M 🙂

My next jacket has been more elaborated 😀

I used this jacket to learn how to applique

Remember the maritime dress with the paper boats?

Burda dress 01.

I had more than enough fabric left over  when the dress has been done.

First I searched the net for drawings of a paper boat. I printed my found in different sizes and sewn it on the back of my jacket

The front got a paper boat too. This time with Miss M’s initials. I also made piping with the lining fabric

For lining the hood and the front I used the dress fabric. For the back lining I took the pocket fabric

Front of the jacket

Yes, I know. The pockets are a little displaced

Back of the jacket.

Unfortunality I put the paper boats a little to high on the back. The hood is covering part of the boats 😦

A cute nautical dress for a little girl

I really like the Burda pattern!!!

I made one summer dress with Mickey Mouse and one with school supplies.

 This one will be the last summer dress for this year. Fall will start soon – unfortunality hihi

I so love everything with nautical colors, motives   ❤ ❤ ❤

This fabric I have as jersey and as cotton in different colors. Its sooooo cute. I made a T-Shirt for myself last year. I love to wear it ❤

I had more than enough fabric to sew a summer dress for Miss M and do something for myself.

Here photos of the summer dress

Little dress with Mickey Mouse fabric

Did you read Mickey comics, watched Mickey on TV as a child? Went more than once to Disney Land?

Yes? Me too hehe

When I saw this fabric I had to have it.

I didnt knew at first what to do with this fabric. Then I found this pattern in a sewing magazine and used this cute fabric

the shoulders arent sewed they are closed with a knot

unfortunality I couldnt found the same red fabric as in my Mickey fabric for the pockets. Instead I used blue fabric which came out quite well 🙂

Sewing more skirts for a little girl

My longtime project is done (jacket) and I had time to make a  skirt again.

This gnome skirt I made weeks ago.

I’ve seen this fabric and knew it would be a cute skirt for Miss M. 😀

The next skirt I finished today.

I love dots, I love stripes. ❤ ❤ ❤

Why dont use one of the fabrics  for a little skirt? I embellished it with 2 pirate girls on the pockets and white lace.

Instead of one 1 I used 3 small elastics here. It looks way better then the skirt above 🙂

Skirts, skirts, skirts for a little girl

A co-worker has a cute little 6 year old daughter who ❤ ❤ ❤ skirts.

Good luck for her I have a lot of fabric for children 😀

So I startet to sew skirts for her. It doesnt need this much time like it does with my stuff. And its the first time I have sewn something for a child.

Its very funny but you can see which skirt I made first. The seam for the pockets is way to far from the edge

Skirt 1

the 2nd skirt. I added a white velvet ribbon

Skirt 2a

This skirt needed more time to sew than all skirts I did so far. I wanted the pockets perfect with the fabric pattern and I did it 🙂

Skirt 2b

The next  one 🙂

Skirt 3a

and skirt number 4. This skirt is the best I did so far

Skirt 4a

Here you can see Miss M. with her new skirts ❤

Skirt 1 + 2

I just “designed” the next skirt on paper. Now I have to sew it.Maybe this weekend I will have the time to do it.
