my goodness, it’s been forever since i’ve posted!  life has been so very busy lately.  school projects, oya no kai’s auction, running after frankie and getting ready for our baby!  i am almost 36 weeks and it’s hard to believe that our little one will be here in less than a month.

my dear friend jen came to visit me a few weeks ago & we settled in for 4 days of sewing, crafting and catching up.  jen is one of the most creative people i know…check out her projects, ideas and her latest office re-design at creating bits of envy.

we sifted through piles of patterns/fabric and decided to make some clothes to fit the new baby in the fall.  she also encouraged me to complete my unfinished projects.  months ago i started several outfits for frankie and never finished them!

first up, a modern cowl dress for f.  i found the downloadable heidi & finn pattern on etsy.  i made a matching headband out of fabric scraps & vintage buttons.  jen finished the red velvet jacket i had cut out for christmas…it looks perfect with the stripes!striped modern cowl dressstripes headbandred velvet bolerored velvet bolero / vintage button detail

next we worked on some outfits for the baby.  i made a reversible jacket/dress out of vintage knit, red flannel and handmade bias tape.  jen pieced together an adorable dress out of the smallest fabric scraps EVER, using a patty young modkid pattern.dress 1dress detail 1dress 2the maya dressruffle detailfabric detail
