Wow, it’s been awhile since I have done any sewing or blogging. And, I have a good excuse…
His name is Noah and he was born on May 1st at 10lb 10oz (big big boy). He is now 11 weeks and he is such an awesome baby, and life has been so great with him, and the other kids are so happy and love him so much! He just started sleeping all night, so I’ve been thinking about slowly getting back into sewing/blogging!
Anyways, I have done a liiiittle bit of sewing since he was born, but I’m taking it veeerrrrry slow! I have a couple things to blog about that I actually made and photographed before he was born, and this shirt of Lucy’s is one of them!
I tested the Ressica Raglan awhile ago for Craftiness is Not Optional (I’m a big fan of hers!) and I love it (although not as much as her Nessie pattern!). It is a very simple raglan button-down shirt (also includes a dress length) and it was a breeze to sew. The instructions are really good, so I would think even a beginning sewer could make this… although, the buttonholes and shirring at the waist make it a bit more difficult, I suppose. I must, however, confess one thing about this shirt… after a couple wears, I realized the shirring at the waist was bothering little Lucy, so I ended up picking it out. I don’t have any pics of the shirt without the shirring, but she wears it a lot and I think I actually like it better without the shirring.
This pattern makes such a cute little staple for a little girl’s wardrobe!
