Ottobre Odds and Ends

Still not doing much sewing, but I made a few little items for DGD. Here are soome capris from an older issue and a skirt (skirt and leggings/shorts are from 1/2009) and tee from more recent ones. I just cleaned up and don't have the issues in front of me. The blue skirt is a mini in the magazine (Minna style #33)--but I added about 2 inches to the pattern and then added a 2 inch eyelet ruffle to the bottom. I also made a pair of white cotton/lycra shorts (shortened leggings Taija #32) for her to wear underneath. I have fabric (white interlock) for a coordinating tee shirt. We are going to have company and needed to clean up the sewing stuff so the guests will have a place to sleep!

The red/white stripe tee is from the most current Ottobre--again I made some shorts from the issue with the above mini--just shortened the leggings that were designed to wear under the mini. I bought some red twill and will make her a longer version of the mini from red twill. Good basics to wear to school.

Finally, the check capris are from an older issue of Ottobre and match a melon tee I made last month. She can wear these for play or school. Fun and easy items to fill out a wardrobe.

Things are still in flux but sewing does help to fill time and keep one occupied.
