I found out about this last week. I was so sick and longing to sew that I made plans. This time around it is Maria's turn to get some nice clothes. It is hard finding patterns for older kids, but I was determined. We picked up a few $0.49 patterns at the thrift store a while back. We are going to be using those to make a dress and a skirt. I also combed etsy for some cute big girl patterns.
So far, I managed to sew two Sweet Cheeks Tops and cut out the material for the dress from our thrift finds. I have plans to make some skorts using this pattern and a t-shirt or two using this pattern. Maria and I have been collecting fabric for a while. I don't usually make a lot of things from knits, so this is a learning experience. I really hope that I can get all of the things made. Maria won't really need any new clothes for a while (apart from intimates). I am not putting myself under pressure and just using nap time. It will probably take two or three weeks, but that is ok. Maria is excited and loves to model all of her new things.
