Making Dresses (and britches)!

1 Feb

Sunday was a productive day. Lizze and her mom came over to sew with me and we made 6 dresses and 5 pairs of shorts for this charity:

We took lots of photos to share with you. Please ignore my super messy, ugly sewing studio. It’s in the process of a remodel. It’ll be beautiful soon, but for now, it’s an eyesore. And yes, the curtains are tacked to the drywall.

Tada! All done!

Not bad for a day of work, I’d say. It felt good making these because we knew that they’d be going to kids who would love them. I’ll be shipping them out later in the week. If you want to help, it’s not too late. You have until April to get these sent in! Even if you only make one or two, that’s one or two more children who will have a beautiful dress or a new pair of shorts because of you. Trust me, they will be grateful.

    Naturally, Selina left the photo of me drinking a cocktail out…hence the seam ripper.
