I think I have a problem. I can’t seem to stop sewing school uniforms for my daughter. Is there a 12 step program for this I should consider joining? Since I acquired a new sewing machine this weekend, I just had to sew a few more.
I used polka dotted fabric for the button tabs and the front, back, and hem facings.
Last year, I made H. the Eliette Jumper by the French company Citronille. I think it was the only uniform I made for her last year in khaki. She wore it twice before ripping a huge hole right in the middle of her dress. I made her another one using thin-whaled corduroy.
I have resolved that I am done sewing khaki skirts and jumpers for the rest of the year. H. is still able to fit into many of the blue uniforms I made her when she was 4 and 5, but those are now being retired and have found adequate replacements. Hopefully, she will be able to continue to wear them as tunics as she gets taller.
