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.

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!)
