I was very inspired by Dottie Angel’s challenge this afternoon and straight away I hauled out the two overflowing boxes of material and old clothes I have been saving for … something …and made a pair of pants for Rosella.
I know. The photo is a bit blurry. But the girl is cute, right?
How’s that for a model pose?
The pattern I made up from another pair of pants she has and the material came from something I didn’t even know I had. It looked like a mattress cover for a cot-sized bed. I thought about keeping it because the Holly-Hobby inspired pattern is so cute, but … well they make pretty cute pants too, don’t they? Retro seems to be the thing right now so Rosella can strut her stuff in her Holly Hobby pants, and I think there may be enough material left over for a skirt too. Maybe one for me!
I’m so proud of myself. Now I’ve got one of my favourite skirts out on the kitchen table, ready to make a pattern from that too … and my old Reader’s Digest “Things to Make and Do” book open at the guide to sewing pages.
I am supposed to be doing lots of felting in preparation for the Goddess Conference but at times like this my inspiration tends to lose focus!
