Jump Around

I am on sewing-fire lately!

I made another Janey Jump Around dress by Peek-a-Boo Pattern shop. I like to make at least two, if I can, of any new pattern because the first one I try is almost like a wearable muslin that I test fabric, size, and fit.

janeystandm I did a few things differently this time. I still lengthened the sleeves, but I also added contrasting cuffs.

janeyshowm Very easy and I think they add a nice connection to the contrasting fabric on the neckline.

janeydressm Speaking of the neckline…on the last dress, I double folded the band, so that it was thinner. For this dress, I followed the pattern closer and left it larger, and I love it!

janey2m I did mismatched, fun buttons, and Falafel couldn’t be happier.

janeysmilem The fabric is thicker than the last, and I like it so much better. I have already washed it, and it held up beautifully.

janey5m And it looks stinkin’ cute on her too (uh, even with her sneakers).

janeysillym And now she’s a kitty cat.

janeywhiskersm Whiskers!

janeyupm I know there will be a point when my sewing will shift for her into “older kid” clothing. She may not even want to wear Mama made things anymore *gasp*

janey1m For now, I am relishing our time in this stage/age and all the wonderful patterns there are. I do love it so.

    It looks like you were at our place last night (up in Ferndale)… they came for our pears that are falling off the tree… maybe I should do something about that! :)

    Woops, that reply was for the deer picture. I must have clicked on the wrong reply button!

  3. Great colors! I dread the day they don’t want to wear what I sew as well.

  4. You ARE on sewing fire Michelle!! Another gorgeous offering – looks very comfy :)
