Once Upon A Thread: My Turn!

Have you been following along with "Once Upon A Thread?"

Well it's my turn today. I am so excited to share what I've made! I have to admit its a little daunting to have my work up next to all the other amazing seamstress Katy has gathered. All the creativity going on over there is pretty inspiring. To say the least.

But between the move and remodel and new baby boy, my sewing machine has been gathering dust, and it was really fun to have a reason to brush her off and get her humming again.



I made this little romper for Avery inspired by "The Secret Garden."



And I might have had a few other tricks up my sleeve....like a robin for her hair, and some Indian inspired elephant pants for Ollie...but alas I decided to make the pattern for the romper from scratch and that stole away too many of my sewing minutes!



Still though, I am quite pleased with how it turned out...and Avery couldn't stop bouncing and moving about the entire time I was photographing her. And since that was the idea-- to create something pretty that she could move and play in... I feel like the outfit was a success.

Check out the whole post here.

And I've promised a tutorial on how to make those petal sleeves, and if you are kind enough to come back later...I will have it for you here (um...its suddenly turned into 65 degree sunny weather here and there is serious playing outside that needed to be done... sorry the sleeves had to wait!)

  1. i clicked over to her blog and i love how the little photo shoot turned out (and you already know how i love the romper.) avery clearly loves it too. oh and i lllove the buttons. might be my favorite part.

    my only sadness came from seeing such scant arm rolls on her... sigh, guess she had to grow out of them sometime...

  2. I had no idea you made this romper! I think I already told you I love it (in my email) but this takes it to a whole new level! I should have suspected though...it has your great color sense and it's way too cute to find at the store. Good work!!

  8. I clicked over to you from No Big Dill...when I saw this romper I fell in love. It is so darling. A few weeks ago I bought a 1970's romper pattern at a thrift store but have been too scared to try it. Now I'm dying to see my little 2 year old in one. You are awesome.
    ps--I loved your book choice as well...it was my favorite as a little girl.
