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.

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!”
