Being back east meant some family time. I have a big (big) family, scattered around, but the core is still in New Jersey and I miss seeing them more. Especially the littles, as they grow so darn fast. Here’s a lovely shot of a just-woken-up-by a newly-minted kindergartener-and-her-brother visiting aunt, plus the goofs goofing around.
In reality, Miss M didn’t want to share me with her brother very much. After all, when we color together he just wants to grab the crayons and paper. “Can’t you get him out of here?” She was particularly interested in my ability to make clothing. It seemed a novel idea to her. “Aunt Lou, can you make me a dress with pockets? Because girl clothes have ZERO pockets!” I agree, and yes, of course I can. We even looked at fabric on-line. She wanted stars or planets and chose the blue, with the planets second place. I’m sure I can find something like it locally. If not, there is always Clementine Maine to the rescue!
It was fun to see her think about sleeve length, dress length, and pocket placement. “Can you make matching leggings, too?” This is when I do wish I lived much closer.
Any suggestions on simple dresses (with pockets) patterns gladly accepted.
