I have a backlog of things to show you, a husband who has the ridiculous notion that I should be cleaning the house right now and, ok, I really should be giving the floor a sweep right now. Still, it's Kids' Clothes Week over at Elsie Marley, so I'm squeezing in a quickie post.
Kids' Clothes Week was badly needed around here: I tend to plan to make my kids some clothes, so I don't buy any, but then I don't get around to actually putting aside the time to make some. Luckily Meg has given me some motivation, as my daughter's belly was starting to peek out from under a few too many too-small shirts...
So, here's today's effort: a plain long-sleeved top, based a little upon the pictures that I've seen of the Summer Blouse in Heather Ross' Weekend Sewing. I made up a wee pattern and put a little bit of printed twill tape on it to add a little interest.
She wanted the sleeves rolled up, like my shirt sleeves were..
Thank you for all the sweet comments about the embroidery. I was asked if I planned on sharing any of the embroidery drawings - is that something that any of you would be interested in? I keep planning on researching pdf writers and working out how to put pdfs on blogger. If anyone can recommend a pdf writer, please let me know. It would make sharing things a lot simpler.
.I'm off to sweep the floor, then. Take care..
