Here's Eloise wearing the merino top I made for her yesterday.
I made her the leggings last week and the skirt is one I made for Maddy years ago
that she refused point blank to wear.
Both my girls have been home from school and kindy today. It actually worked really well as they play really well together most of the time so I was able to get a lot more sewing done than I would have done if it was just one of them. Eloise could have gone to kindy in the afternoon but Maddy was begging her to stay at home and they were playing some great games so I let her wag off kindy. (Bad Mother!)
I finished the little tunic dress and thought I'd try it on Eloise just in case it did fit. It fits perfectly so that's another thing ticked off the list for her winter wardrobe.
It twirls quite well too!
I mentioned yesterday that the bulb had gone in my sewing machine. I still haven't replaced it so there's no night sewing for now, but I made use of yesterday evening to do lots of cutting out. I made this hoodie for Maddy using Butterick 5164. It's another pattern that I have used a lot and is really quick and easy. Great if you want to start using knit fabrics and want to start somewhere simple. It does make up really big though. Maddy is wearing the size 4 and she is a tall 6 1/2.
And because I had just enough of the pink star sweatshirting left, I made their babies hoodies too. Jasmine on the left belongs to Eloise and Caitlyn on the right is Maddys. The girls were very excited and pranced about the house for about half an hour in their matching tops. Very cute!
I got most of a reversible dress finished for Maddy but it needs hemming and buttons on it so I will save that for tomorrow. Phew. I'm off for a cup of tea and a lie down now!
