No, not like this. However, this would be a great maternity Halloween costume, huh? That's not going to happen this time around, since I'm due in early June.
I am always buying the cheapo patterns you see at thrift stores. They're frequently in perfect condition (never even cut), but the styles are too old fashioned. Old fashioned eighties or nineties styles, that is.
So...I've been looking for patterns with particular pieces I want. I'm going to mix them all, using the same children's size. I just hope the pattern sizes are consistent from pattern to pattern. We'll see.
I've cut out the pieces, and hopefully the sewing will go quickly. I dislike cutting out pattern pieces. What's your 'yucky' part of the sewing process? I love the actual sewing (if it's not too advanced for my skills), but my favorite is picking out and adding trims and buttons and such.
I'm going to take the body of the dress from this one. It's nice and swingy...a great 'twirl dress'.
I'll add the short sleeves from this one.
...and the pants from this one. (This is a new pattern, by the way.)
We'll see how it turns out. The more pregnant I get, the less patient I get. Not to mention mood swings. BOY am I moody these days. If this turns out crappy, I may just throw it out the window in a fit of rage. Or cry for an hour while eating pumpkin muffins. I am running out of energy earlier and earlier in the evenings, so I don't want to commit to a project that isn't going to turn out at least semi-well. This may be more potential frustration than I want to deal with right now. I'm going to try anyway, so wish me luck!
