Atonement T-shirts

The traditional color for Day of Atonement is white. Our church was celebrating in a traditional way so I quick whipped up some white T's for the boys. Sewed them in an afternoon but it took me 2 months to get them posted. What's with that? Oh, yeah, I'd rather be sewing than blogging!

They are in the same size t-shirt at this point. Ottobre patters are wonderful. Now if I could remember which Ottobre I used.....

Pink Skirt for Little Miss

I finally got back in the sewing room between canner loads! Praising the Lord for an abundant harvest this year but I'm ready to get back in the sewing room!

I made a couple of white t-shirts for the boys for Day of Atonement at our church. I'll try to get photos of those up soon. I only type this as a reminder to myself.....

The credit for the photo goes to a dear friend who invited us to a home school photo shoot.

This week I sewed up a skirt for Little Miss. It is from Ottobre 4/2013. It's called Tangent velveteen miniskirt #34. But I made a size 128 and lengthened it to the length of a 140. After taking it in a bunch because she has no hips to keep it up, and making major adjustments because I didn't have an invisible zipper handy, it turned out pretty well.

It was a pain making it but I'm proud of the finished product. I'm also proud of myself because finally after many, many years I feel confident enough to veer from the directions and make things work the way I want them to.
