✪ If you're new, I am taking the challenge to create a letter themed outfit to correspond with Clover's preschool class letter of the week ✪
Judging from the comments on the last post, it seems I have a sleep-deprived group of readers! I've so enjoyed reading what everyone would do given a weekend to themselves (and yes, I've read them ALL). Besides sleeping, it looks like there will be lots of sewing, reading, a bit of relaxing and some beach time! Perhaps now that we've all written out the wishes of our hearts, we can make them come true?I do hope so. Meanwhile, C week has come to a close with stamped chairs along the hemline, 3/4 sleeves, a collar,
checkered buttons and some contrasting bias tape. This was another one of my own designs, made out of some cotton knit for comfort for the schoolgirl. I had to cut out about 6 different collars until I got it just right, but lucked out on the sleeves the first time.
On the way to school, I was drilling Clover to make sure she could tell her teacher all the c's she was "wearing".
I think she just remembered the chairs. Ah, well. I'll cut her some slack, seeing how she was mostly excited about being able to make cookies at school. Don't blame her, right?
So, what's up with the Chinese, you ask? As I was feverishly working to get it done the night before, Ryan was sitting on a beanbag in the sewing studio to keep me company and said, you should have done Chinese! Well, NOW you tell me! But the last hour is usually when I perform best, so I whipped out our Chinese family stamp my parents got in Taiwan when we were first married.
And as I was doing Clover's hair before whisking her off to school, she said thank you, mommy, for making me all these dresses!
She knows just what to say, that girl.
