The girls are equally well set-up......I just need to do some knitting (YAY) and sewing (not quite so YAY) and mending (not at all YAY), then they'll be right too.
It will be of absolutely no interest to anyone reading this, but I'm putting in my work list here so I can keep track of what I need to do.
J12: tear in trousers
K8: purple fluffy vest seam * add layer to maroon pinafore
ER9mo: hem gingham skivvy * hem red skivvy * shorten rose tea dress
J11: lengthen jeans * lengthen sleeves on flying shirt
L6: mend hole in mickey mouse pants
M4: mend hole in mickey mouse pants!!!! * lengthen jeans * lengthen sleeves and body of flying shirt
To Sew From Scratch:
J12: fleece flower top * fleece striped pants * good dress set
K8: fleece GIRLS pinafore * fleece striped pants
T2: fleece patched swing top
J11: black cords * blue fleece pants * blue and orange fleece sweatshirt
K9: aqua cords * striped fleece track suit
L6: black cords * black/aqua reversible fleece vest * jungle sweatshirt with orange pocket * orange pants with jungle pocket
M4: aqua fleece pants * black/aqua reversible fleece vest * jungle tracksuit with blue pockets
The plan for the fleece sets is for the older four kids to make their own (with some help from Mama of course). J12 has already made some of her own clothes (as well as some for her siblings - all sewn by hand!) and the others right down to L6 have all done mending, so I have high hopes for them!
2 pairs of longies and a cardigan for ER
Felted slippers for everybody (J12, J11, K9 and K8 will each knit themselves a pair and a pair for a little sibling too! The little kids can decorate theirs with pompoms they make or embroidery)
Socks for everybody
And yesterday I finished a skirt for ME. It might be a couple of seasons behind in terms of *fashion*, but I made it coz I liked it and I hope to still be wearing it when I'm eighty years old!!! It's pink and natural and romantic and beautiful and 100% quilter's cotton and totally *me*
