A few firsts and things

The finished product and the excited seamstress

 I made my first shirt!! Just finished it this afternoon and had to take a photo just to prove to mum I can make it up myself (sleeves weren't in the original pattern - I just made them up!) and finish a project when it requires buttons. It's made from beautiful Japanese screen printed, double gauze so it is so soft gainst the skin and designed by Nani IRO.

From the back with the cutest pants
and again but with PiZazZ!
Following up the first time shirt are a few other first time 'whipped up' projects

Birthday bag for Alex (original design)
and her first sewing project the bear rug

Bag for 'bear' (original design)

By the way Amy appears to like the dress (but not the camera)! and Diana is once again unclothed until I trial the next design.
I now have a new stash of fabric from Rathdown Remnants - narrowly missing the filming crew for Project Runway - and from GJ's discount fabrics, to make new scarfs, winter coats and bags! Excitement plus!!
