For the last month and a half we have been sick with flu, cold, and last week my kids got some immunizations that were a couple of months over due. We still have a dry cough that won’t go away no matter how much tea, honey, ginger we take, it is still there and hopefully we are almost done with it.
I haven’t done much sewing, oh, wait…maybe I did, but do not have any photos from those projects. I made two cute Inari Dresses, one out of Rayon and the other out of a nice light linen that I got from Miss Matatabi a while ago, but once I get photos ready I will share them with you, hopefully I won’t take me months for that.
Today I want to share a pair of cute shorts I made for my daughter a week ago, it is a bit cold still but I think the warm days are around the corner to wear shorts and skirts and sleeveless tops.
These shorts are super easy and simple to make. Fabric is Nani Iro Pocho in silver pink and got it maybe 4 years ago in Canada at the Greenwood Quiltery. Love the metallic details. Beautiful fabric it feels like linen but it is a double gauze. Pattern is LESSON 1 A from this great Japanese Pattern Book “LESSON BOOK” by Yuki Katagai.
I made this dress a while ago, maybe a year ago and like so many other clothes I haven’t been able to write a post about it.
So quick note, this one is my favorite one and I have done it twice now. Love the print with kitten faces (Girls are crazy about kittens lately, do you know why?) Fabric I got it from Miss Matatabi , and pattern is B2 from this good pattern book from my friend’s Etsy store Pompadour24.
This is a short post but wanted to give you guys some life signals, I’m still here, just a bit busy and tired and trying to get my sewing mojo back.
Thank you for visiting, hope you had a great Easter weekend, we did here in Half Moon Bay!
