Sew much to sew. Sew little time.

It has been cold and snowy here. I have a great sewing room and did a bit of sewing. I can watch the birds and when the sun is shining one can pretend it is spring. I had some children's cloths I picked up at good will. I decided that the skirt would make a good skirt for the American girl doll. I cut the skirt waist band off. Took off 9 inches from the side. folded the top down to make a casing for the elastic. sewed up the side and it was done



. I tried it on Bonnie but it was to long so I cut off the original hem. Serged it the edge then put in a new hem. Good to go.
I had made another skirt, 2 vests ,a shirt and a pair of leggings. I made it all mix and match. The first vest is wool. It needed something to jazz it up so I did a bit with buttons and embroidery. The lace skirt is a bit to fu fu for my taste but the kids will like it. The vest needs something . Maybe some beading. I will be using the other parts of the skirt for another shirt and maybe a head band.
