When We Were Young

It was nice to hear from some of you after my last post, and know that I’m not the only one who totally missed the KCW boat.  Seems like summer is a time when a lot of us slow down our sewing a bit, and for good reason!  I personally have been loving the extra time off to enjoy my summer and relax a bit.  Especially since we’re gearing up for welcoming baby #2 this September.  I have a feeling that “extra time” and “relax” will not be a part of my vocabulary for some time after that!

ANYWAYS, I’m here to tell you that I got a chance to participate in sewpony‘s super fun series, “When We Were Young” and my post is now up, so go check it out!  We were asked to recreate an outfit of ours from when we were a kid for our own kid.  Seriously, it was SO. MUCH. FUN going through old photos and trying to find the perfect one to make for Yuki.  So to give you a little peek – here’s the outfit I was inspired by.


If you want to see the version I made for Yuki, you’ll have to hop on over to sewpony!  I’m also thinking about posting a tutorial for that little pinafore, so check back in for that next week.

Be sure to take a look at the other guest posts that have already gone up (click here and then scroll down to the list of guests and Suz has linked up the previous posts there) – they have all been so amazing!  And then check back weekly for a new post from her awesome line-up of guests.

AND if you want to join in the fun – find an outfit from your own childhood and recreate it for your child and then add it to the When We Were Young flickr group!

Thanks for stopping by!
