I had lost my sewjo lately because I was lacking motivation. Both girls have plenty of summer clothes and I wanted to start sewing winter clothes but I didn't have any material. Pay day was last week so I made the one hour trip to Spotlight to see what they had. I decided I need to make Chloe a few pairs of cord pants, a few jumpers, tracksuit pants, a pinafore and some leggings. Im also going to make a hoodie dress out of fleece using a pattern I bought off Etsy. I found what I needed at Spotlight (I was there an hour and a half!) including a beautiful floral printed brown cord. It was rather pricey so I bought a few matching colours in cord so that I can use it in a few different pieces rather than just as an item itself. So here is my first creation! I used a pattern my mum gave me. Mum made Chloe a pair of pants using this pattern last year and they are a great fit. She still wears those pants all the time. I added the floral panel which is why I love them so much! Its so much fun putting together your own creations! We call them her fancy pants and she adores them. They are certainly a bit different and you probably wouldn't find them in a shop anywhere which is why I like them. Next Im going to make Elyssa a pair as well although her pants will be all floral cord. A bit too fidly to add a panel to such a small pair of pants.
