Weekend sewing pictures

My top from leftover dress fabric - pattern and inspiration are in this post and this post. My neckline is different, but will be fine. I used every bit of fabric but am thrilled with my new top. Maybe hubby and I can go on a date this weekend!





Skort for my niece - Ottobre 1/2007 #37, same pattern as her birthday skort. I added polka dot ribbon donw the side of the front panel and left off the back pockets


Another skirt for my niece - Ottobre 4/2006 #27, I added to the side seams as my niece is bigger than the largest size on the pattern. The pattern goes to 134 and my niece is a 140 or 146. I used some elastic for the trim with a button instead of a bow.


Next up for my niece - a green t-shirt to match these skirts, a yellow wrap cardigan and a couple of blouses.

    Lori,
    Love your latest sewing creations. Your dn must be thrilled with having you to sew for her. I remember how much you sewed for the twins when they were younger. I read your blog regularly and really enjoy it.
