Matilda Jane Butterfly Pants

bought a pair of butterfly pants from Matilda Jane and I love them!  I thought they would be perfect maternity pants because they have a wide ribbed waistband. I used the pants I had to make a pattern and I made a pair for a friend.

Gotta Love Doodle Pants!

Less is More

I decided I was in the mood to make a more casual outfit for Keira. I modified the peasant dress pattern to be a tunic by removing the ruffles / gathers and making the bodice a single piece of fabric with a slight flare at the bottom. Then I made a pair of matching single ruffle pants to go with the tunic. I love the results!  The best part is that the entire outfit took less than 2 hours to finish!

I also made a pair of ruffle cinch pants for a friend that is having a baby soon. Her husband is an avid cyclist so I thought this fabric would be fun.

Chase is such an amazing big brother!  Every time he walks into the room Keira lights up and smiles at him. 

I can't believe how big he has gotten!  He is reading like a champ and has been working on learning how to swim.  He even took a board breaking class at Karate (this year he wants to test for his green stripe).

I can't wait until it is warm so Keira can rock this romper!

It was a pretty simple pattern - first time I have ever made anything with snaps. If I were going to make another one I would probably make the straps thinner and shorter.

Busy Bee

Keira and I had quite the day. We went to a tea party with my sewing group and then hit a Matilda Jane Trunk show. 

Here is Keira in her party outfit. 

The food was delicious...

And I picked out a few fun outfits for myself at the Trunk show including these fun pants!
