'Scuse the mass post; I'm going through some photos in a lame, half-hearted attempt at organising them, and found a bunch of clothes I'd made.

Here we go...

This was a cute little spring jacket from Emma Hardy's Making Children's Clothes. It didn't fit for long, sadly.

My daughter is modelling a messenger bag I made for my nephew. Sadly, said nephew's father took one look at it, declared it a handbag and no son of his, etc, and banished it. I hear the nephlet has since unearthed it and uses it to carry around his toy cars, though. Heh.

Here's DD in a party dress I made from a modified Ottobre pattern. The skirt's a little longer and fuller than it should have been, to accommodate twirling preferences; and I accidentally bought fabric in a narrower width than the pattern stated, so I had to add the curved yoke thingy and do some fancy cutting to avoid running out of fabric!

And here she is wearing the apron I made for the birthday girl. It's meant to tie around the waist, not the bust, but what can I say - DH took the photo. A heavily modified version of another Emma Hardy pattern - I basically just kept her idea of a cutout neckhole and ties round the front.

I made this whole outfit for DS: the shirt before he was born, the biblet copied from one my sister sent me, the waistcoat and trousers from Ottobre.

Another waistcoat and trousies, both Ottobre. I love Ottobre! He's not unhappy in this photo, just temporarily worried that his tummy button has gone AWOL. Don't worry, he found it.

Another shirt and Ottobre shorts:

Going back in time a bit, a heavily-modified Ottobre overall pattern. These were made from the fabric of one of our groomsmen's shirts! They were big medieval-type shirts, so there was plenty of fabric to work with.

And a not-so-flattering shot of the baby in another pair - the same pattern, but much closer to the original.

And here's DD modelling the Snow White dress I made her for her fourth birthday. Naturally, the dress isn't ironed in the picture - the sleeves look better when they are. That was in May, and the dress is now distinctly worn and dingy-looking around the bottom, has been repaired twice, and is nearly too small. I'm making her a Cinderella costume for Christmas, based on the same pattern, but sized up and altered.

I'm pretty sure I've done more sewing than that recently, but that'll do for now!

Ooh, you have been busy. What a shame that jacket was grown out of so quickly, it's lovely. Snow White is amazing too.

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.

Lovey sewing!  Would that be a turkey in the background?

Hee! No, just a ridiculously large Black Orpington. She's called Georgia. Arial (younger Blue Orpington) and Lucida and Wingdings (two Lavender Aracaunas) are behind her.

Thanks for the nice comments, everyone! Smiley
