I found about three really cute summer dresses for Boo recently. She's a size 2T now. Unfortunately, the dresses did not come with matching bloomers, and believe me, this girl needs them! She's constantly climbing, rolling, and running, even in a dress. I like the bloomers to hide her diaper.
Since the cute dresses were missing bloomers, I decided to sew my own with some solid colored material that I already had on hand. I just had to go purchase matching thread and 1/2" elastic for the waist and legs. I'm using a McCall's pattern, M5353.
It's slow going because I'm still a novice at reading patterns and sewing from them. I also have to wait until the kids are in bed to do my sewing. But, I'm getting there! And maybe, if I get ambitious, I'll make Boo a couple of matching sun hats too. I'll have to think about that. She doesn't keep hats on for long.
So, what have you sewn lately?
