Hello, hello, hello! Oh how I’ve missed the sewing community. Let me start by saying thank you for your thoughtful words on the birth of our boy. He’s four weeks today! Can you believe how fast time flies? I am definitely taking the advice of soaking up every minute with him.
But I am also planning on taking advantage of the time he spends asleep. I’ve found that with all my maternity sewing I didn’t make anything that’s nursing friendly. Not a thing. And how many things do I own that are nursing friendly? Two, maybe three, if I feel like wearing a bright wrap dress (not really). So here I am planning a nice nurse-friendly wardrobe. I sometimes get distracted by shiny objects so no promises I will keep to this list. But I will use it as a guide.
I snapped up this pattern as soon as it was announced. I had been trying to decide on a button up pattern and this one looked perfect. The ruffle in the back is such a great feminine touch.
This has been in my stash for far too long and needs some attention.
I’ve been craving this dress for ages. It’s time for it to be made.
And these two from Cake Patterns.
And I can’t forget about my promise to complete a sewlution for the year. I’ve been desperate for a nice fitting blazer/jacket. I’ve decided to go with Colette’s Anise pattern.
I bought the companion booklet and I’m hoping that it will get me through the making of my first outer garment. For practice sake I’m going to make a mini blazer for little dude. Working in miniature should make it less intimidating, right ?
First up, Archer…
