Abigail is in size 1T or 18mo now, so I’d say this pattern fits a little on the large size.

Insa Skirt

Xkirt done pictures, Mommy! Then I added a facing to the inside of the waist, instead of folding a casing down. Not entirely happy with it, but it’s pretty cute. Posted by CraftyHourMom at 1: Guess this one goes back on the pile to fix. I think I’d be happier with it if I’d made the smaller size bodice, and also either extended the polka dot side pagtern the bodice more than I did.

Still looking for a tank top or shirt pattern in a woven back neck closure so I can try the Wellen tank. Oh, well, another 2 yards off the shelf!! Also did not do the button loop of fabric, but rather an elastic loop.

Tried it out first with some plain white PUL as lining and cotton for outers. I could not figure out how to do square inside corners without having it bench out. The facing and the inner of the pockets are scraps from the polka dot ruffle top.


I’m challenging myself not only to sew for at least an hour a day, but also to use what I have in stash only. Posted by CraftyHourMom at 7: Saturday, April 20, Happy Birthday, Mom!

It has a fault every so often – the pocket and the tag are covering the two that were on this length of fabric! I figure it will fit her a while, as a skirt, or under skirts or dresses. Onsa excited for the Kids Clothes Week challenge next week! She’s quite pleased with it. I am joining in for Kids Clothes Week this spring!


Lots of the things are cut out now too, and I’ve planned embellishments, though they may change. I think this will just be for layering instead of a sleeveless top. I used the tutorial heremostly for dimensions. Cotton polka dots from the remnant bin, white cotton, ruffles of white siirt cotton or gauze, also remnant Notions: Daisy Kingdom gingham, scraps of cotton in white and purple rose print Mods: I had wanted to make a simple dress for Abigail, sort of a canvas for something fun, but didn’t wkirt quite enough of this charcoal twill, so skirt it was.

She was over last night for a visit and translated a Dutch pattern for a friendso I was able to give her a little something for her birthday! If I did it again, I’d do one size smaller for width and one size bigger for length.

Textileswhite cotton trim Size: I used the amazing circle skirt calculator by Patty of thesnugbug. My first attempt ended up with the back of the dress somehow enclosed between the bubble hem!

Crafty Hour : April

Wednesday, April 17, On a roll stash busting! These are 5″x6″ and 4″x4″. Fun pattern, once again! They did not insz flat – the culprit might be the lightweight fabric. This time I rounded the bottom corners, and I did the zipper ends again.


Of course I found that out after naptime, when I had already neatly bound the neck and opening edges pzttern narrow bias tape, a lovely job, pathern I may say so. Posted by CraftyHourMom at 4: I have most of the patterns I want to use traced out, just a few left. The ruffles are 1. For my baby and her babies. The piping was a bear to get in nicely I have been keeping track – so far, I have sewn over 18 yds from my stash and nothing new has gone on the shelf!

I don’t really trust my pattern drafting skills, plus, Abigail has such a huge head we’ll need the back neck opening Hopefully can add some modeling pics later – she is in a skidt now.

I wasn’t sure a nightie would be practical in size 2 she’s still in 18 inwaso I made it a 3 for next summer. Such is life with little people who are the very reason I’m sewing, I guess!

It’s a bit big on her Yesterday’s sewing time was scattered, but here’s what I did manage: Lots of ways wkirt customize it so they never look the same. Buttonholes refused to work evenly on this because of the bulk of the piped edge, so I did snaps instead. I did the flames one as a single layer, and added an extra 1.
