Sewing for Family :)

I did some sewing for my daughter last weekend.

Pattern: McCall's 5697 I made view B.
Children and girls jacket: loose fitting,unlined jacket has self-lined yoke, collar and front button closure; jacket A has short sleeves with stitched hem; B C D have patch pockets; jacket B has below elbow sleeves with ruffle; jacket C has long sleeves and purchased flower; jacket D has long sleeves with buttoned tab.

Conclusion: This was a easy sew.I had seen a lot of these jacket in the store for little girls. So I decided to make one for my dd. The fabric I got a yard sale for 3 yards for a 1.00$. The fabric is denim. Click picture for closer look.

I also made a blue jean purse for my niece! She loves it!! That is good she is 14 and hard to make something they like!

Well that's it for me! Happy crafting!

Hope everyone had a great 4th of July!We stayed home and barbecued and watch the neighbors fireworks.

My hubby started a fire ,because it was cold that night!

We were happy he started that fire!!

Then Justin wanted to start his own fire!!

Now to sewing!!

I was at JoAnn's fabric and was passing the see and sew rack and this pattern caught my eye. Well I had already broken my pattern diet for the summer so what's one more pattern. It was only 2.99 and I used my 40% coupon to get it!LOL!

Pattern: See & Sew B4957
Misses' dress and sash: Semi-fitted , sleeveless, flared dress has lined bodice, neckline variations and back zipper closure. Sash has stitched hem.

Notions: 22 inch zipper, Hook and Eyes.

Fabric: cotton I bought from a yard sale. 4 yards for a 1.00$.

Conclusion: Very easy pattern. It only has 5 pattern pieces to make this dress!! And if you make the sash it is 6. From start to finish I think it could take you about 3 to 4 hours or less to make. It took me 4 hours. I used to the same fabric to line the bodice. Super simple dress. I highly recommend this pattern!
