Home made or specially designed clothes? I am having a little fun dressing up MiniMe

In my early teens I wanted to be a fashion designer and I used to draw a lot of crazy things. I also submitted a few design for a competition when I was 14.  Ha ha ha, I did not fare as well as I thought I would. I remember getting a letter thanking for my contribution, but they thought I was maybe a little too young. Oh well, I thing it was their way to let me down easy.

From time to time I sew clothes or should say design clothes for the children, most often I make practical wearable clothing. Some patterns i make myself , some I buy and re do a bit to fit the style I want, and some I just eyeball and cut out free-hand.

I Have been a little buzzy bee since I made my little sewing nook. I have had a little fun making clothes for MiniMe with fabric I have had for a while. The plan was to make something a long time ago, but since my situation has changed, all my fabric and craft stuff had bern packed away.

The past few weeks I have finished about a dozen items of clothing for her and I still have a few more that I have not finished.

“Mum why do you not become a real designer and sell your clothes” the little one asked. Oh the sweet thing, she has really high opinions of her mum.

Here are a few of the tings i have made for her. The one above I just cut out by eyeballing it. It is an easy simple design, I made two layers and hemmed the top layer with some lace.

This two piece dress above i did not use a pattern either and I hand smocked the front part of the top. I smocked another top and I am currently working on the yellow piece you see to the left below.

When I lived in South Korea I had some lables made:)
