Contentment and fulfillment.
I feel like I have actually achieved something today.
It wasn't what I had planned to sew but I'm happy I did it.
I used to sew a lot of clothes for my kids when they were little and I was a stay at home mum. Nowadays most of my sewing is quilts and crafty stuff.
I have been trying to encourage my daughter to become involved in sewing and making clothes. She is very petite and it is difficult to find things that fit her nicely - we need small sizes but then the length is wrong, so if we go for the length then the size is wrong. I had the same problem until a few years ago...
I have encouraged her to sit with me and look at web sites and patterns and pictures.
This afternoon I was thrilled when she said that she would like the Ombre dot we bought to become a peasant blouse.
She loves it and I'm pretty happy with it as I had to draft the pattern myself. We are just in discussions about the bottom of it. I want to add a ruffle and she doesn't.
Any thoughts? To ruffle or not to ruffle, that is the question....
