I know I sew quite regularly but I have always avoided sewing the children any clothing, I think I have always found sewing patterns to seem unbelievably complicated and intimidating.
About 6 months ago I bought a lovely book called "making children's clothes" and have been flicking through it for the past month thinking I really must get over this fear of pattern following. So yesterday when Finlay settled down for his afternoon nap I got out the book and made the simplist item from it I could find and it worked! It may not be perfect and the stiching may be a little wibly in places but it worked! Its lined, it fits and with the help of some lovely Tanya Whelan fabric its quite cute!
So I quite proudly present you my first item of clothing!
