Repurposed jeans for Audrey

I decided to try to re-purpose a pair of Audrey's jeans. They fit except for the length, so the ruffles took care of that!

I got a couple of fat quarters from a seller on Etsy to do the ruffles with. The fabric is by Riley Blake... the name is "Hooty Hoot". The amount of fabric worked out great!

I just got a blank shirt to put the "A" on. The lil owl is from Embroidery-boutique.
I think the little outfit turned out cute. Her favorite thing about this outfit is the belt... she loves it!!!

That's all for now, Thanks for looking!

See ya,

Took a sewing break... I'm back!!

Sewing friends I took a break from sewing for a while. I totally neglected my blog... but it is a sewing blog. I simply didn't have anything to show.

In the spring I had made several outfits for my dear Audrey... she simply did not need anymore clothes. It's a different story now with the change of seasons. Although here in south Georgia we're just in transitional wear.

I made this outfit this week just basic black/white gingham lined in white imperial batiste. I used the Martha Pullen pattern. I love this classic lil pattern. It never goes out of style. The pants are made using a basic pants pattern by Ottobre, I just added a ruffle to the bottom. I also lined the pants with the batiste. The pants just seemed so flimsy without the lining... especially for the winter.

That's all for now
See ya,
