Before I show y'all a few things I've been sewing on I have to ask if y'all have seen those hilarious "Hey Girl" sayings that are all over Pinterest? Oh my word! They crack me up! Here are two of my favorites!
|He is so talking to me! Do Not walk in my dining room/sweat shop without shoes on or you will be sorry!|
|Another precious fabric choice.|
I haven't invested in personalized labels yet, so for now I just fold over a little bias tape and sew it into the waistband to indicate the back of the britches.
The third pair of britches was made with this sock monkey fabric. I can't believe I forgot to take a picture, but here is what the fabric looks like.
This is the fabric that was sent for the ruffle. I didn't like it.
On it's own it could be cute, but I didn't think the reds matched and the ruffle monkeys weren't even sock monkey's.
Turns out my friend wasn't so sure about the combination either. She said the lady at the fabric store matched them up. We decided I would just make the ruffle out of the sock monkey fabric and I'll save the other monkey fabric for something else.
My friend's little girl loves her new britches!
