I must admit though, that buying kids clothes at yard sales for 50 cents is much more economical than creating my own. But maybe I can make just a few things for Isaac and myself. (I did make him that Turkish Tunic that I am so darn proud of). So, I went through that pile of patterns and picked out way-more-than-a-handful patterns to take home and try. And here is just a very small sampling of the ones that I took:I am just wild for all these vintage patterns and can't wait to try them. And here is the bonus ... my Mother-in-Law was the same size as me when she was my age! So, the patterns for me are just perfect. Well, I suppose Halis might argue against them being "just perfect" as he thinks some of them are hideous. Like this one:
And I absolutely LOVE it. I just love that era of clothing. And this may be one of the first things I make for myself, including the matching headpiece. Sure, I may not wear it to the mall (for one because I don't go to the mall) but I think it would be so cool to wear around the house.And how sweet are these bell-bottomed giraffe overalls? Isaac will thank me for them later, right?
