A couple of weeks ago, amongst the shower planning and relative visiting, I sewed some things for Penelope. I realized after going through some of Ellie’s hand-me-downs that the seasons didn’t overlap nor their sizes. SO I started sifting through some fabric and patterns I have collected and have started my list.
I really am challenging myself to make a good amount of Peppy’s wardrobe. I really enjoy making things for her…it also gives me much more confidence with my machine and pattern reading (or NON-reading!).
Did you notice that I actually made a button hole?! I remember in high school, it took me weeks to make my “semester long” dress project. I think there was like 4 buttons- pathetic, I know! I can’t take all the credit for the button hole. My husband was kind enough to figure out my machine and the little mechanism that goes with it for holes. I am a much better student when someone SHOWS me a process.
Here’s the girl wearing her pinafore. I found the pattern at a thrift store and it was one of my most prized finds for the summer. I actually found about 6 patterns all in Penny’s size from the 70s- I think! Stay close for some more sewing “Show and Tell”.
