Sunday Outfit

My daughter's Sunday shirt is getting too short and it's a summery shirt. So, of course, I had to sew a new one! I pulled out my Jalie 2805 pattern again. I made two other versions here. That is what I love about this and other Jalie patterns--most of them can be made from size 2 toddlers all the way up to size super big for women! How they do it, I do not know, but it works!
I had some issues sewing since I wasn't paying enough attention and sewed one of the arms on with the wrong sides facing. And, to get that coverstitch unstitched in this fabric--whew! I'm surprised it turned out as it did--the edges of that fabric were mutilated!
The fabric is a knit from Turquoise Stretch Ottoman Knit. I also used it for the arms of this shirt here. The applique is still from my Rhapsodia fat quarter bundle. It has been used a number of times, here and here.
Of course, I could NOT just leave it plain--it needed some girliness. So, a flower applique it was, with some buttons for the center. I really like adding little details like this--it makes it look so much more professional.
It'll work perfectly with her ruffle skirt! Add some tights and she has a winter outfit for Church!
Ha, and on a totally different note:
Quite the beast of a carrot!
Yes, this does mean that I got the carrots out of the garden and a bunch of them canned! This one was one for the canner--it won't last long in the cold room on account of all those projections.
Have a good weekend and a blessed Sunday!

  1. Just came across your blog last night! Loved reading through all your older posts. You ended up choosing the same machine as mine!! And your projects all look Fabulous :). I haven't been as ambitious with quilting and sewing lately. I'm finding myself a little busy with kids and the everyday things life brings. I'll wait till it starts to rain and get back into my groove :) Take care Fenna!!


Thanks for stopping by! I'd love to hear your thoughts and ideas!
