Dress: McCall's 6275
Pants: Simplicity 4572
Since we returned from our lovely holiday we have been playing catch up and getting ready for Fall and the start of school. Do you ever wish you could have a vacation to recover from your vacation? For my part, I have been in a mad rush to get school supplies and to stitch up some quick school clothes.
I have a stash of mainstream patterns that have been picked up for pennies, given to me, or come to me from a number of places. Many of them are not exactly my cup of tea, but why not go through them and see which are keepers and which to pass on. The plus side of this is that I don't have to spend time drafting my own patterns and most of them are super fast to stitch up. Since school is starting next Tuesday, that is a good thing.
The dress above was made from a vintage sheet that I acquired from Sherri of Little House in Paradise.
The Engineer has been busy as well. He finished up a gorgeous coffee table made from reclaimed wood.
It turned out beautifully and is the perfect compliment to our living room. I love it!
He and a good friend also worked crazy hard on Saturday to build a chicken run to keep our pesky hens out of the garden beds. Hooray!
Oh, and Pony Girl has been making stuff too!
What have you been up to? Make anything lately?
