I Did It! and Completed DF's GS's Outfit

I did it!  
I'm so proud of the computer skills Im learning through having this blog!  I worked for several days to get a slideshow on my blog sidebar.  I asked Cindy  how to do it.  She told me how she got hers on and then encouraged me to persevere until I got it.  So I did and I got it!!  Yea!!

Limerick - "There Was An Old Sewer"

There was an old sewing blogger who wanted to show what she could do,
But about anything technological she didn't have a clue.
She wanted a slide show on her site.
She worked and worked till she got it right.
Now her sewing creations can be seen on her sidebar, Woo-Hoo!


I'm finished with my friend's grandson's outfit, almost.  I haven't made the buttonholes or sewn on the buttons on the shirt.  I wanted to get this post done so I could start sewing and not stop. Now, I've got her grand daughter's dress to make.

These are the patterns I used.  I made the vest and the shorts from Butterick 6894 and actually followed the pattern almost exactly.  That was weird, because I never do that.  I read the pattern directions and everything!  I made the shirt using Simplicity 3852 which had this bubble suit kind-of shirt.  I didn't put the bands abound the legs and I cut it up a little higher on the sides of the leg openings.  I lined the back yoke which was not in the pattern.  I added cuffs to the sleeves.  I used velcro as the crotch closure.  I also finished the seams with bias tape as shown above.

Good going Julia, getting your slide show to work! Hooray!

That little boy's outfit it superb. I mean--most people could not afford to buy the quality clothes for little ones that you are making. Adorable.
