It’s been a while since I last posted about sewing. How the time flies subhanAllah. I haven’t sewn any new garments lately, but I have definitely been mending. I used to dislike having to mend clothes –ugh– I still do, but to a lesser degree.
I was looking through some pictures and came across a few things I’ve sewn over the years but didn’t post about. I thought it’d be nice to share them with everyone.
I made this dress a few years back when my oldest niece was smaller. I was going through a ruffle phase. I am quite fond of flowy dresses, especially with the addition of ruffles. This was made with soft lawn fabric.
I like drawing out the patterns myself and figuring out how to sew them. I made this dress as a challenge to myself to see if I could sew something both layered and ruffled. My other goal was to sew it as neatly as I could. Hmm, seems somewhat successful I think. What say you?
This dress used up quite a bit of fabric. :/ But, I was happy to note that there was just enough leftover for me to make a mini version for my sister’s daughter.
My oldest niece really loved this dress and it looked lovely on her mashaAllah. And although she couldn’t speak then, my baby niece looked adorable in her mini-version. I love matching outfits with slight variations to mix em up.
That’s all for now. Thank you for reading!
