What I made this weekend

This Saturday I had a baby shower for a baby girl and a birthday party for a 5 year old boy. Since I had procrastinated all week watching Breaking Bad with my husband at night, Saturday morning I grabbed a cup of coffee and hit the sewing room.

For the baby shower I made a 3 tiered skirt using my serger to do the gathering. It was a breeze. Too bad I don’t have girls or I would be cranking these out regularly.

I also threw together an oversized flannel fox blanket with some handmade bias tape.

Then for the 5 year old I made some old man pants. I picked up some ugly old thrifted plaid pants and used the Parsley pattern to make a much cuter pair of pants with some bright turquoise pockets.

Not bad for a morning sewing session.

  1. Can you provide more detailed instructions for the skirt, for a beginner sewer? Do I need a serger to do it? Would love to crank these out for my girl.
