There's nothing like a few surprise warm days to make you realise the kids are in desperate need of summer clothes. I looked over the Target catalogue this week and contemplated stocking up for the family. But really, I do have a substantial quantity of fabric which I could use for the kids. So after a morning of sewing, Adele now has three new pairs of shorts.
Always the over smile!!Vintage fabric from the Op Shop. Again only $1 and I have more for something else.
Oliver & S Puppet Show shorts - a super quick and well sized pattern - which I borrowed from Sam. I made Adele a size 3 and they fit well. The total cost for three pairs of shorts is about $15 inc elastic.
Even though I feel like I've contributed a little, I'll probably still head out to buy her and the boys some new t-shirts. I don't have much knit fabric in my stash and our hand-me-downs have well and truly dried up now.
So tell me, have you been sacrificing your precious sewing time for the family too?
