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?
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 😦
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
For the pockets I choosed the red fabric with the paper boats
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 🙂
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 🙂
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
the 2nd skirt. I added a white velvet ribbon
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 🙂
The next one 🙂
and skirt number 4. This skirt is the best I did so far
Here you can see Miss M. with her new skirts ❤
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.
