Stepping out of my comfort zone

So now that my niece found out that I have a sewing machine…you know the drill.

One of the kids was going to be a pirate in a local play house production, could I make something like this: http://littlestonecape.blogspot.com/2012/10/easy-peasy-one-piece-childs-pirate-shirt.html

Well I’m going to say no. So off I went looking for material. She dropped off material for the pants. And I started sewing.

20140622_215052I think this turned out really cute, especially considering I wasn’t using a pattern. There was one hitch. Mom wanted the stripes, but dad said “Why do you want stripes” so then naturally, the kid went with dad…”Yeah, mom, why are my pants striped?” So off I went in search of black material. The second pair of pants were trickier – I had sent the pair of jeans I used for a pattern back with the first outfit, I was doing it from memory.

This pair doesn’t have the flare that the stripes does, but they turned out so cute.20140624_204705

The lesson of this task is “Don’t let Dad see the costume until the kid is on the stage!”
