So I haven't sewn anything for a week. That's a long time for me. The break was good, since I wasn't feeling very excited about sewing. I did some other things that needed to be done - some cleaning, pulling stuff out of the flower beds and gardens, organized some closets, etc.
During the last week the weather got noticeably cooler. So, today I started on the project of making fall clothes for my older daughter. As you can see, I have a few things lined up.
In an effort to make this easier, I picked up two new pairs of jeans yesterday that I thought were reasonably priced. Both of them were great for length, but much too big at the waist. After trying on both pairs my daughter said, "Mom, I think I need to be a little fatter for these pants to work." Wouldn't that be a nice problem to have?
I'll probably look a little harder for RTW jeans that fit her. I do have the Jalie jeans pattern that I haven't used yet. Maybe I'll use that for her. It just seems like it would be a lot of time spent on a garment that will likely be outgrown before the end of winter. I took some measurements today and my daughter grew 1.5" in height since I made this dress. Oy.
Off to the sewing room...
