So I have been hording vintage patterns and fabric for a while now and I realized it has gotten out of hand. So what better way to de-stash and curb the hording....making stuff.

I made this one today. I really hate cutting out patterns. that takes more time then sewing but what are you going to do?

Anyhow here it is..

And the back...

And I even made matching bloomers...

Too bad it would be wrong for a 30 something to wear that around town....I love kids clothes and just the fact I can't wear them Sad

Very cute!

I am collecting cotton Hawaiian fabric scraps for a quilt if you wanted to send any my way!

I love that!! I think I have that pattern but I also hate cutting them out and then trying to understand the strange language that they are trying to pass off as english....  that material is so pretty, I would love to wear that too Grin

So you, could spend the morning walkin with me, quite amazed. As I am unwashed and somewhat slightly dazed.

OMG, this little outfit is so sweet.  I love the green and the daisies are too cute.  I see a lot of kids clothes that I wish were made for adults, so I know where you're coming from.  They have the cutest little clothes.  Great job!  Can't wait to see more.

That fabric and pattern are great. I hate tracing (to prevent destroying my pattern) and cutting out my patterns too. It actually will deter me from sewing at all. To prevent this I put on a really dumb movie and cut out about 10-20 patterns at once, then I don't have to cut for awhile.

I LOVE THAT FABRIC!! IT'S SO FREAKING CUTE!! The best part of vintage patterns is they are usually already cut out for you. Too bad that one wasn't already. Seriously though I am loving those daisies!

Can make dresses for your princess!
