I am still sewing up a storm, and two of my latest creations are a twist on mother/daughter themed clothing... for me I made the Smashing Smock from Anna Maria Horner's Seams to Me... this was a pretty easy and fun project, took me a few days to finish during naptimes and evenings. I used fabric purchased on a whim because it was on sale on Sew Mama Sew and I liked the colors several months ago (Gabrielle in rust by Studio e Fabrics), and paired it with an equally loud crazy fabric (Dolce Lilly by Tanya Whelan) I bought from Pink Chalk Fabrics when making a friend's baby sling. Orange, pink, green, purple: crazy. Just the way I like it.
I think I need to do a little tweaking to this top, or wait until I stop breastfeeding :) in order for it to fit the way it is intended to, or I just need to keep working on my sewing skills. Fitting clothes for adults is a lot harder than it is for little children! I made this top in size medium, based on my measurements, but I think it would have been better a little looser on me. But if I wear the top backwards (with the button opening in front) it fits pretty great. And the v-neck opening is more flattering on me I think! Not bad for the second real item of clothing I've made for myself.
Next, I added the Gabrielle fabric leftovers to the bottom of a knitted tank I made years ago for my son, which my daughter now wears, and is a little short. Now it will be a funky dress, but probably not for another year since it seems to be more a 2T-3T size. (This photo is pre-hemming!)
