Recent sewing projects

 Last week was a big week for me as far as sewing went. Since I bought that super cute clearance fabric I had all kinds of ideas running through my head about what to do with it!
I decided to make a couple of summer outfits for Chloe Jo out of it and I am so thrilled with the results. I am thinking more and more that I want to reopen my Etsy shop after we get moved and life settles down.

This is the first outfit I made. I used a pattern for the shirt and pants, but added the flower to the shirt and added the ruffle to the pants. Don't the additions just add so much to the outfit?
I came up with the next outfit by myself. I bought the t-shirt from the local hobby shop and added the ruffle and the buttons. I used a pattern to make the shorts. Shorts and pants are so easy to make so the real time consumer in this outfit was getting that ruffle right.

And lastly, you may remember this shirt that I made for Chloe Jo to wear for her birthday party. It is Strawberry Shortcake inspired and oh-so-cute. Well I didn't think Chloe Jo would be comfortable wearing the matching tutu all of the time so I made a pair of matching shorts to go with it.

I have to say that when I put a pair of red Mary Jane's with it, this outfit was adorable! It may even be my favorite out of the three I made last week!

Now I need to start thinking about curtains for my craft room! There's always something on my list!

Those outfits are precious! I always pretend like I could start sewing when I see cute things like this... but it never quite works out!
