After my Friday posting binge, I got busy sewing on Saturday.
I finished my sister's, the chef-to-be, apron. It turned out pretty cute.
I'm worried it's not going to be enough coverage. This particular pattern is reported to fit size 4-24. I don't believe it. I'm tempted to get more of these fabrics and go with the Qwik Sew pattern that I know would cover well.
Anyway. Here's the recipe side.
and the olive side.
I started on the flannel sleep pants for the kids. If I had known how ridiculously easy this pattern was (Simplicity 3669), I would have cut out all four pairs at once. As it is, I only cut out one. These little britches were 35 minutes from the time I cut them out to hemming the last leg. It doesn't go much faster than that.
I've decided I'm sizing impaired. I got both kids and measured them and came up with all kinds of odd stuff.
Caitlyn's size according to measurements: Height (size 6), waist (size 10), hips (size 7).
Sam's size according to measurements: Height (size 8), waist (size size 12), hips (size 7).
My scientific way of sizing was to take the three sizes and average them. I came out with a 10 for Sam and an 8 for Cait.
I had both kids try on the purple pants and they fit both in the waist and hips. The length was good for Sam, but Miss Shorty Britches needs about 4 inches cut off.
That doesn't look like much for all of the effort I put into yesterday.
Unfortunately, it's cold and the kids can't go out so they have cabin fever. I don't need them any sicker than they already are or I'd poke them out the door and wave as they headed for the treehouse. I broke up fights and separated kids most of the day. Definitely not how I like to spend my time.
