Reglisse: A Breath of Spring Air

“Spring?” you question, puzzled “But it’s October and you don’t live in the Southern Hemisphere.”

Yeah, sure don’t.  But perhaps my tardiness can be inspo for all of the Aussies and Kiwis and whoever else is fixin’ to start their warm weather sewing!  And I also figured I could slip this one in before it got seriously cold here; once the snow starts flying these nice green pics might make me sad.  Ha.

Mama and Me: Voile Wonders!

Last but not least, here’s Peaches’ dress! Another Baby Jaimesyn by Simple Life Pattern Company. You can see what Cheeks and I wore in these previous posts. I had designs to make daddy a tie, but I ran out of time. Sorry for the short end of the stick, Mr. 5. :(

The Blue Velvet Jumpsuit

Those are quite the three words, eh?

Blue. Velvet. Jumpsuit.


This is the only jumpsuit I’ve ever owned as an adult, and as no surprise with that information, the first I’ve ever sewn for myself. Definitely not my usual speed sewing-wise, but I have been wanting to try my hand at sewing a jumpsuit for a while now, and was pretty intrigued by Papercut Patterns Sierra Jumpsuit.
