A Collection of Children's Apparel

As you know, I'm no expert at sewing clothes, but I can officially sew shorts
Earlier on in the year my cousin asked me if I'd make some pre-school shorts for her son, who had grown out of his old ones. I said I'd give it a go; I did, and they worked!! Yes, I was very, very happy. Not only did they work, but they were quite simple and easy, and remarkably fun to make.

I also made another dress like this one, with just a couple of changes. I gathered the top instead of pleating it; added a tie/straps, some ric-rac, and a zip at the back. 

I have a whole stack of different dresses on my 'To Make' list. So HOPEFULLY I'll be able to show you some more photos soon!

Have a blessed weekend, and remember to spoil your Mama tomorrow! Got any plans? My brother and I are going to make a three course meal for dinner -- it shall be interesting!
