You may remember this summer when I suddenly confessed that I was addicted to making Hannah dresses, dresses, and more dresses. And other things.
Now that the weather has turned cooler, I have a new obsession, sewing comfy shirts upon shirts. And some dresses. And a dozen+ bow ties, but that is something completely different.
Anyway, a few weeks ago I got my hands on a pattern for this Bimaa sweater, and oh man, I love it.
I immediately sewed one up for Hannah, like in a night.
It is a long sleeved shirt with a cowl neck option, but if you sew the cowl part in a contrasting fabric it looks like she’s wearing a scarf.
So she gets the neck warmth of a scarf, except she can’t take it off. I’m sold.
So I did what I always do with a fast pattern with a great result, I immediately made another.
And Hannah turned into the cheesiest little cheese ever. Seriously. She is going “cheeeeeeEEEEEEESSSSEEE!!!” What a little nut.
The yellow and white striped fabric is from a t shirt of mine from a few summers ago that I love, but only looks good when I have a tan. And now that I live in England, I pretty much never ever wear it. So instead of donating it I decided to chop it up and use it for a shirt for Hannah since her coloring is completely different than mine and it looks great on her.
We had walked down to feed the ducks that morning, but the tide was so low that the ducks were gone and it was only crows and pigeons. But they need to eat too, right?
And crows in the background makes for a very Halloween-ish type of photos. 🙂
I’m linking these up at Kids Clothes Week, which is a weekly challenge to sew something for your kids one hour a day for one week and see what you can accomplish.
I’ve already told Chelsea (who will hold me accountable/make fun of me for deviating) that this is my last week of sewing for the kids for a little bit, because next week I am diving head first into Christmas sewing. Yep, I said it. But as for this week, there will be more of Hannah and Jayce. 🙂
