My mom’s birthday is April This time I rounded the bottom corners, and I did the zipper ends again. Posted by CraftyHourMom at 7: I used the amazing circle skirt calculator by Patty of thesnugbug.
She was over last night for a visit and translated a Dutch pattern for a friendso I was able to give her a little something for her birthday! Also did not do the button loop of fabric, but rather an elastic loop. Lots of ways to customize it so they never look the same.
I’m tired of sending plastic ziploc bags to school, but Ian can’t open isna smaller plastic containers himself – he loves this flames bag! The inza are 1. Tuesday, April 30, Watermelon Fun. I hope I can keep this up. Not quite liking how open the armholes are. Posted by CraftyHourMom at 1: All done pictures, Mommy!
I think I’d be happier with it if I’d made the smaller size bodice, and also either extended the polka dot side of the bodice more than I did. Sorry for the blur – she never stops moving!
Guess this one goes back on the pile to fix. It’s more a wide tunic than a real dress on Abigail, even this is her size by measurement. For my baby and her babies.
She loves it though – “Adidail pitty!

I have been keeping track – so far, I have sewn over 18 yds from my stash and nothing new has gone on the shelf! Then I added a facing to the inside of the waist, instead of folding a casing down. This one was a bit of a trial for something else I had in mind – I’m glad I decided to add a little detail, because I love it! I love how it turned out! Wednesday, April 17, On a roll stash busting! I figure it will fit her a while, as a skirt, or under skirts or dresses.
Also, planning ahead for hem allowance would have been good. I used some scrap cording and narrow white bias tape to make the piping. No topstitching visible anywhere – hand-stitched the back of the hem, and machine-stitched the front hem under the ruffles. Here it is without a shirt under it.
I had wanted to make a simple dress for Abigail, sort of a canvas for something fun, but didn’t have pattren enough of this charcoal twill, so skirt it was. You basically leave a hole in the lining at one side seam, then gather the shell and sew the pzttern and lining together through that gap, “as far as you can reach”.

So far, so good! Once part of it was pinned, I reached through the hole and was able to finish paftern and sew all the way around. It turned out beautiful – the only issue is, I did not do the keyhole opening at the back deep enough, so it still doesn’t go over her head Textileswhite cotton trim Size: I wasn’t sure a nightie would be practical in size pagtern she’s still in 18 moso I made it a 3 for next summer.
It’s a year ago also that I started this blog! If I do use this pattern again, I might cut it longer so I can do a proper hem that will hang nicely.
Daisy Kingdom gingham, scraps of cotton in white and purple rose print Mods: Tried it out first with some plain white PUL as lining and cotton for outers. Posted by CraftyHourMom at 3: I think this will just be for layering instead of a sleeveless top.
I am joining in for Kids Clothes Week this spring! The colours aren’t quite true – it’s more of a light lime. Definitely more than one hour yesterday. Saturday, April 20, Knsa Birthday, Mom! Wednesday, April 10, Polka dot ruffle top. Abigail is in size 1T or 18mo now, so I’d say this pattern fits a little on the large size. Posted by CraftyHourMom at 2: If I did it again, I’d do one size smaller for width and one size bigger for length.
