Fall is just around the corner: clothing challenge

Fall Kitty

We’ve been having such a fun summer, and as I look out the window and see the sun-dappled, lush and green trees, it’s hard to believe that autumn will be here in no time.

K is equipped with a new backpack already and we’ll need to go shoe shopping in a week or so. And then there is the ritual of Fall clothes shopping — oh, how I love little girl clothes! However, this year I’m doing something rather ambitious and kind of crazy: I am going to make all her clothes for the next 12 months. That’s right folks, if it’s not underwear, socks or tights, I will be using my trusty Bernina sewing machine to produce outfit after outfit. It’s been way too long since I’ve sewn her anything, and I miss the therapeutic hum of my machine and the intense concentration that comes with sewing. Not to mention the incredible satisfaction of creating a little wearable art.

First up: a dress! Plans and pictures to follow soon (though you won’t be seeing K herself – internet safety, y’all).
