Eight going on Sixteen
WOW! I seriously never anticipated such response to my knits announcement. My inbox has been flooded with questions and I can't even keep up with the Twitter and Facebook comments. THANK YOU! (I mean it!) And to think for a while there I was afraid I'd be the only one in the world sewing with these! Well, you proved me wrong. Can't wait to see what you guys sew up.
For those of you who have expressed some apprehension about sewing with knits, NO FEAR! Knits are easy peasy to work with and you'll be so amazed as to how fast you can complete a project because you are cutting out so many steps you'd normally do with woven fabrics. From time to time I will post tips, tricks and tutorials here on the blog. And I must also mention that my new knit patterns come with full knit-sewing instructions for the beginner.
So, now on to the topic of this post... my "big girl." She seldom models for me anymore because she seems to think it's not "cool" (who knew?) And she thinks most dresses make her look "like a baby" (geez, I thought she was my baby!) She pretty much could live in an old pair of jeans and a rugged tee (who's child is this anyway?)
So I'm sure you can imagine my surprise when she said she liked my Abigail pattern and wanted me to make her one. After I picked myself off the floor, I offered to make her 1 or 20 with the fabrics of her choice.
She even agreed to a mini photoshoot... if she could pick her own accessories! How could I refuse?
And... as icing on the cake, she decided to wear her new Abigail to her school concert Monday night. There she is in the back row, where they put the "tall" kids (that was never my issue! haha)
Ahhhh! Life is sweet! :)
