June Happenings

Well June is almost over and I am just now getting to my monthly update.  Alot has been going on this month.  June is always a busy time for our family, with the end of the school year and birthdays.  The summer is off and running, but I am still in school at Apparel Arts.  This month Apparel Arts is having a repurpose challange and I have been working on a few outfits for Chloe and Claire.  About a year ago Tom was cleaning out his closet and was getting rid of a couple of dress shirts.  I just loved the fabric on those shirts and couldn’t bare to get rid of them.  I saved them thinking I could make a dress or skirt for the girls out of it.  Well, when this repurpose challange was presented I finally had a reason to work on this project.

This dress pattern will be part of my collection that comes out for sale.

Here is a picture of Tom’s shirt before I took the scissors to them.

 I am working on a romper for Claire.  I can’t wait to get that one finished.  I’ll be sure to post pictures with July’s update. But for now, here is a before picture of the shirt I am using.

Have a wonderful summer.
