Riley's Made by Nana Christmas Presents

I have my camera back! Hooray!!

I'll show you the things I made for Riley first. This will be a quick post.

I used S2745    to make a coat , beret and pant set using fleece  lined with micro fleece. I omitted the godets shown on the pattern as I thought it would be extremely wide at the bottom and I was glad I did.

Here is what I ended up with.




And here is Riley on Christmas day ( minus the pants). She loved it and it was hard to persuade her to take it off.




Riley is three now and she says she wants to be a chef when she grows up. Her daddy asked if I could make her a chef's hat so I did. My DH searched on line for a picture to help me draft an apron and hat. Cute,huh?


And my Little Pixie on Christmas Eve.


She still had her apron on when Santa dropped by for an early visit.





And with Santa (Daddy) and baby Poppy.





Thanks for humoring me and  having a look at my sweeties.

I'll show you the denim trench first chance I get.

That is one of the best parts of being a sewer - making the faces of little loved ones light up! Beautiful outfits...J

I can see why you are smitten. Riley is adorable and her outfit is charming and beautifully made.

Diana, that is so precious. Great job.

She's positively darling and I love her two new outfits. I think three year olds are probably more fun to sew for than anyone out there.
