I spent the day sewing... well... half the day anyway.  Here are the fruits of my labor:



I had originally bought this fabric for a purse for myself... but it just screamed for my daughter.  Just a simple A-line jumper... my first time using bias tape - SO EASY!!!



This fabric I just had in my stash...  I can't remember what I got it for.  Another A-line, but this one is reversible...



See!  Nothing fancy, and I would have posted an action shot, but they're still too big for her(I'm working on her winter wardrobe).  Thanks for looking!

*edit*

I finished a pair of pants today...



She insisted on wearing them right away.  I'm sooo in love with this fabric!  I also made two more dresses today...



Bias Tape is my friend...  =D  I learned to check the pattern's seam allowances... this one fits better.

 

My first sleeved item!  Sleeves are a pain!  But I'm pleased with the outcome... and so was The Little Bird.  Thanks for all the comments everyone!

I really love your fabric choices. I think the simplicity of the shape really highlights how beautiful they are.

Had to post again, because I am loving that last dress! I still haven't attempted sleeves, but if that is really you're first try (which I'm doubting...), I may have to give it a go.

Well Done!!

I love, Love, LOVE that pink material *covets*

oooh i *like* doing sleeves, but I think it's because i somehow 'get' sleeves. Hate zippers with a passion, and also finishing cut edges (don't even have a serger/overlocker) but i think i might have to take some bias-tape inspiration from you!!!!  Wink

God i wish i had you sewing my wardrobe for me!!
