This is going to be real short: needing something for a newborn girl I decided to make a skirt using one my daughter used to wear as a pattern. I found lovely striped fabric in red and white at IKEA and ended up using old-fashioned linen buttons, too:

red-and-white skirt

From the fabric I had left I made another apron for a friend of my son’s celebrating her birthday. I made the bias binding from some white fabric out of the ever-growing pile of leftovers:


And, this last weekend I finally made a shirt from Ottobre design’s summer 2008 pattern – it’s a trial version, though, besides neither being red nor white and I’ll postpone posting pictures until I’m done with the final one!

Stay tuned,
