clothes for Marie
So, instead of buying, I made few clothes for little Marie :). Making child garments is usually quick and easy (as the fit isn´t so important), so it´s really enjoyable. I use simple patterns with cheap fabrics which make the process really fuss free. All the patterns are from 1992 Burda mag my grandma gave me - she used to make clothes for me and my brother with it when we were kids :). With this single Burda I already made two pairs of throusers for Marie (and now the coat and the leggings). I´m also making a winter coat with the same pattern now, minus the ruffles in the front and minus the hood, unfortunatelly, because I don´t have enough fabric. Instead of the hood I´m making a collar, which I like too! And I plan to make her some nice cord pants, too. I love making these small pieces.
And look at this beauty! I accidentally picked a zucchini with a bud and took it home, and then it bloomed like this in our kitchen :).
