Easter Sewing

No, no I haven't finished (or even started!) my Easter sewing yet...but I have started to THINK about it!  That's how on my game I am!  lol

So, I haven't decided for sure what all I'm going to do but I thought I'd share the ideas I'm toying with and then keep updating as I actually get some of the sewing done.  I'd like to make at least one thing for all the kids and possibly a dress for myself as well.

I also am going to try to use patterns I already have and haven't sewn yet.  So..here's what I'm thinking right now:

Boys - I'm thinking I'll do a Streamline Tee and The Canaan's Incredible Blazer with jeans for one boy (isn't that blazer just too cute?!?!  I love it!  I'm thinking maybe a thick sweatshirt fleece for it and then a fun contrasting hood lining.  Or maybe I'll make it without the hood and add a hood to my streamline... Hmm...decision, decisions!  Oh!  Or maybe I'll make a Henley to put under it instead of the raglan tee. Hmmm... Ok, clearly I still have some thinking to do on that one!) 


Then for the other boy maybe some Metropolitan Pants (probably upcycled from men's dress pants) and maybe a Prepster Pullover.   

I've had the Pullover pattern forever and still haven't made it. I love it so much though! 

Ok, onto the girls!  I think Kessa is probably going to get a Mainstree Tee and Dress.  I've made the tee version before for Grace but I really like the A-line shape and think it will make a good dress for Kessa now that she's over most of the super filly little girl type clothes. 


And...I haven't decided what to do for Grace or me yet.  I need to look through the patterns I have and haven't made and try to pick one. 

What are you buying/sewing for Easter?

I believe Melly Sews is doing a sew along for the Berkshire Blazer just before Easter :) I've made it twice and love it!

Im in the same boat...although ive bought some fabric I haven't picked out patterns yet. Sad to say my son will probably just get a tie shirt like he normally does. Maybe I should attempt to actually make him a shirt or blazer....hmmmm
