The Happy Homemade Sew-Along hosted by Elsie Marley and You & Mie has come to a close. We’ve all been working on our Pullover Parkas, and it’s fun to see what everyone has come up with! Here’s my contribution . . .
As you can see, this one is for Lulu — in size 2. It turned out to be a little big in the neck, I think. But that’s never a big problem with kids’ clothes. It’ll be perfect by August, I’ll bet.
The fabric is cotton shirting I found at the local fabric store.
The sewing went pretty well, especially with the help of Meg and Cherie in their Sew-Along posts. I learned a ton about navigating Japanese sewing books — which is awesome since I’m becoming obsessed with sewing from this particular book. I’m even contemplating moving on to trying something for me before too long from the other books in this series.
I don’t usually document my sewing with the camera — but since it was a sew-along, I snapped a few this go round.
So, I’m sewing along happily, attaching the facing and feeling proud thinking I know better how to handle it this time.
The next morning, Lulu wore it proudly in the back yard — none the wiser.
Yes, her shoes are on the wrong feet.
