I Made These!

Etsy is a huge website filled with "stores" that sell homemade and vintage items.  I was looking for clothes for B when I came across the Leila and Ben shop.

I looked at the patterns and decided, I could at least try.  I bought the dress and skirt patterns first, then the jacket.  The dress was really easy to do.  The instruction are crystal clear, and include photos.  

The jacket was the hardest, I have since added snaps to the front.

I should have spread the jacket construction over a week.  I wanted to get it done and I made a couple of mistakes.  Still, it has top stitching and everything.  Even a lining! 

The skirt is two pieces of fabric and elastic.

These are adorable. I need to learn to sew better, maybe I will try making the dress and skirt. The jacket looks a little too complicated, kudos to you for accomplishing it.

Thank you for the compliment. My sewing skills are shaky, but the great directions gave me confidence. By the way, I love your blog. Your are so creative.
