I can’t stop sewing uniforms

24 Aug

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.

The Birthday Party Dress has always been one of my favorites both as a uniform and in a print.

   

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.
