I need clothing


Seriously! I know that everyone is SICK of seeing me in my same three outfits that I wear ALL THE TIME, and my "upper half" isn't going back into my pre-nursing tops anytime soon. So I must do something. I'm thinking of making a few things, including this top (which is a free pattern here), but I want to refashion a few things too. I don't have to tell you that I need this to be cheap too... I found this blog very interesting, and this one...and this shop rocks.

So how about you? Do you need some new duds? Or do you have any cool links that I need to see? Maybe we could all work on this together! xo,Sam

I made the lovely frock you have pictured and it is definitely one of my favorites. It is incredibly easy and you can change it up pretty easily too. I love seeing how people refashion atrocious items into cute pieces.

I'm getting ready to make a few maternity things since we've been blessed with the biggest miracle. So yes, new duds are needed here as well :) Isn't it funny how we are always on the lookout for kids clothing, and then one day realize we've been wearing literally the same thing over and over.

Seems there are a lot of patterns online for tops, but not many for bottoms. Here are a few, maybe you can find something you can use. :)

HI Samantha,
I am getting ready to sew a very simple, but stylish dress from the Lisette pattern line found at Hancocks. I think you might enjoy the blog site too!

Happy Sewing, Darby :)
