Back-to-School Sewing

I have been turning out projects at a pretty good speed this summer.  I use the time after the kids go to sleep to sew.  I usually opt to neglect things like finishing the dishes. . .

I have made Maya some cute stuff for this fall and winter.  These two dresses are from Un Petit Design

The pattern is a free download and they were quite easy to make.  One of my pleats is ever so slightly crooked on the pink dress but you can't tell when she has it on.

The flannel I used for these pajama pants was from the remnant bin at Joann's.  I think it cost about $3?  I found a pink shirt in Maya's drawer that had a little stain on the front so I added a ruffle over it and now she has new jammies.

These are Christmas pajamas.  Yes, it is a little early but I didn't get around to it last year so I figured getting them done early might be a good thing.  Also, the Riley Blake flannel I had my eye on last year went on sale for about 4.50/yd earlier this summer and I couldn't pass that up.  I made two pairs (the girls).  I made Sam pajamas last year (Oliver and S Bedtime Story pajamas no less but he won't wear them so I am not sure if I am going to try again this year).  I kept it simple and made a basic elastic waist pant and a peasant style top.
These are hard to see but they are jeans with heart shaped cargo pockets.  I made a pair for each girl. 

I decided to get a jump on another holiday project and whipped up these Halloween skirts for the girls this past weekend.  You can't tell from the picture but there are little silver sparkles on the fabric.  It is a little sheer so I made 2 layers thick.

These two I wrote about in my last post but they are part of my fall sewing projects so I figured they are worth mentioning again. 

I have two dresses I will probably finish tonight and then I might take a little break from sewing for the girls.  It is time to figure out something Sam might wear and to make something for myself.
