Sewing marathon

OK, I exaggerate with the whole "marathon" thing, but I am pretty happy with my sewing this week!
All the tops are made using the Mareen pattern by Cinderella zwergen mode - one of my faves for the girls. All the fabrics are from Crafty Mamas unless otherwise specified.


Butterflies and pink striped jersey by Lillestoff 




I just had to buy this fabric for Mary. It may be hard to see, but it's farmyard animals, and she is a great lover of animals :) Farmyard knit is Lillestoff and pink stripes are Gita. I made it into a dress to really show off that cute print.


I hand dyed the fabrics for this one, I wasn't sure about the yellow neckband but I really like it now. The little mushroom is an iron on velour from Crafty Mamas.


Not a modelled shot for this one, as the little recipient is really under the weather. Isn't it cute though? I may have a hard time getting her to wear it, she won't take off her knitted rainbow dress, even in this warmer weather!

I did make a top for myself too but I'm not happy with it and am currently consulting with some knowledgeable Crafty Mamas for alteration opinions.

What do you think? My husband thinks I'm an amazing sewist, but really the trick is in getting beautiful quality fabric that speaks for itself.

Til next time, God bless you :)

Kelly,

I agree about using good fabrics but you also need a good eye for putting them together attractively, and a talent for sewing. You have both of these. I am sure your girls love their new tops. I wish I was young enough to wear such fun clothes!
