Two very different children. Two very different greens.

Good Morning!

Both garments are self-drafted! This means I designed these garments 100% from scratch, no Franken-patterning. Just a ruler, pencil, and tracing medium. I am feeling fabulous about it all.

My Little Guy

I drafted and sewed up Nels’ little PJ pants in about an hour or so last night. I’d like to get him a few more cozy cottons and I’d like to draft myself such nice, roomy, cotton PJs.

  1. Fantastic! Your kids always look like they love the dreamy things you make for them.

  2. @Ann
    They do love the clothes I make! I love designing them, too. It works out! Thank you for the compliments.

  3. Phoenix looks like she slipped out of the elf village to check out what was happening in the vanilla world, awesome!

  4. @Johnny
    Phoenix is very elf-like in so many ways… except her favorite foods are like, rare steak, and sugar.

  5. Your sewing is magnificent and now I know what an aoxlotl is!
