Sewing: Corduroy Rose Bloomers


Have I mentioned that I am a finisher? I am. I can't wait to finish whatever it is I am working on so I can move on to the next thing on my list. This is not to say that I don't enjoy what I'm doing at a given moment--it's more about the excitement I feel about the other things waiting for me. So I love Elsie Marley's KCWC. It's so tempting to see if I can buckle down and get some clothing sewn.


It's Tuesday and I have something to show for it. Yippee!


I took some of the corduroy I purchased a few weeks ago (I bought this floral from this Etsy shop) when I was in a Fall mood and made Tess a pair of Fall bloomers. These are from my Summer Set pattern and I've been wanting to make them in a cozier version. I think Bloomers with tights or leggings are great on kids when it's cooler, don't you? Some women can pull this off too, but I'm not among them, so I'll stick with enjoying this look on my girls.



I love the idea of quickly sewing some things to add to my girls' closets for Fall, so I'm going to try and keep up with the blogland momentum this week. More corduroy pants and some velvet something.... If only I could be knitting or crocheting at the same time. It would be so fun to have a little cardigan to go with these shorts. Maybe I'll get there. But the Sedge Stitch Cowl works for now. And Tess likes it too.


Aren't these gold Fall flowers the greatest? I picked some of them--they literally grow like weeds--for Scarlett's birthday party last Fall. I can't get enough of being outdoors! Especially the since it's warmed again just a bit. Even Tess jumps up and down when she hears me say, "hike." "Hike?! Hike?!" she says? Such the adventurer.


 I hope you're happily sewing or doing something else to celebrate Fall this week!

Those are some yummy and cute, Anneliese! I adore that fabric, too! Would love to get my hands on some! I wish my girls would go for the shorts over tights look, we're still working on that!! I LOVE it!

Sarah said...

Love!!! Same question here, where'd you get the fabric??? Love it!

Anneliese said...

Thanks so much for the nice comments! I bought the fabric from EuroGirlsBoutique http://www.etsy.com/shop/EuroGirlsBoutique but I can’t find it right now, so it looks like it’s out of stock. It was called “European corduroy Roses.” Maybe you can find something similar! I hope so.

Those are adorable! I found some similar corduroy at Joann's last year and it is still in my stash. Perfect! I was thinking pants, but I love these even more :) Thanks as always for the inspiration!

So adorable! What great fabric. And I love the cowl. I might have to give that one a try since crocheting is my latest obsession.
