For My Easter Bunnies: Cynthia Rowley Pattern 1624 

I've been sewing random little projects over the past few years, hardly calling it a hobby or a skill of mine. Now that I have 2 little girls, it's time I started sewing for them. Patterns can be very confusing and hard to follow! The first pattern I used was not a simple pattern and took me awhile to work through. I used my seam ripper alot. I was intimidated, but I succeeded! So now I'm trying to continue to learn and grow my seamstress skills so that I can make beautiful things for my girls as they grow up.

I've learned that Joann Fabric sometimes will have Simplicity Patterns for ONE DOLLAR. I was lucky to hit this sale and picked up some adorable patterns. I just finished making this 2 piece shirt/pants outfit from Simplicity's pattern #1624, by designer Cynthia Rowley. I just love this outfit! I thought it would be perfect for spring/summer and especially Easter.

 

 

 

 

The finished product! Of course G wouldn't look straight at me and had to have a cookie in order to sit still. The pants are a little long, but overall I think the fit is nice and will last throughout the summer.

New tricks, lessons learned.

How to make a narrow hem (without a special foot). Found this tutorial helpful.

How to attach and sew neck/armhole binding.

This was my first pair of pants! Easier to assemble, harder to get the right fit. 

 

Next week I'll pick another fabric and make one for G#2! Have any good sewing resources or tricks for a beginner? Please do share! Favorite pattern or fabric? Love to hear about them!
