Fun LOUD and Practical


 Since reuniting with my beloved sewing machine, coupled with the luxury of being able to leave her out, I've enjoyed plodding along with a couple of projects in the last couple of weeks


 This fabric had been screaming out to me from 
the cabinet to be sewn with first! But what? 

I had many ideas floating around my head before I settled on this pair of pants


And during the whole process I thought, 
'what was I thinking!!' they're so LOUD!! 


But the moment I clipped that last thread and handed them to my girl with her over the top exclaimation "Oh I looove them!"
I knew I was on to a winner.
 

And they do reflect her gorgeous spirit so well
 

Although I do love to see my little girl dressed up in 
dresses and tights!, ( as she does too ) 
functionality is a must around these muddy parts,
 so a second pair was cut and ready to go this week.
 

This time with some opshop sweatshirt material 
I scored for a bargain price.....infact I could still smell the mothballs each time I ironed it!
 

Teamed with a bright pink tartan for some playfullness!
 

And apart from a couple of pairs of leggings and nighties needed for her wardrobe, shes pretty much set for those practical items so onwards and upwards to those fun dresses and skirts very soon I think....
picture me rubbing my hands together!

Loud is good....in fabric. Your model looks happy to strike a pose in them so I would say you are on a winner there.

They are super super cute. It must feel really good to get such an overwhelming response from your little girl too! Lovely to see your "makes" again. Lisa x
