Here's what I would like to tackle this week:
- A new sun hat for Lincoln, using the (free) Reversible Bucket Hat pattern from Oliver + S Little Things to Sew. There are plenty more gems in this book too!
- A little summer romper for Juniper, using Simplicity 1813, an adorable vintage reissue from the latest collection. I'm thinking view A (minus the cupcake), or D/E (love that ruffle-bum!).
Realistically, that's probably all I'll be able to accomplish, although the wish list is of course MUCH longer. The latest issue of Ottobre magazine (3/2012) arrived yesterday, and there are some cute things in there too. I really like these board shorts for Lincoln:
And this sweet little pleated dress for Juniper:
I could go on and on. The things I want to sew far outweigh the available hours! So back to the actual plan- when I asked Lincoln to pick out a fabric for his sun hat he selected a lovely pale pink floral print. Now, I'm all about encouraging him to make his own decisions and breaking down those preconceived gender rules, but really? I think I may have to exercise my Mama Veto on that one. Don't I? What would you do?
