Okay, two posts in one day.  Since Mom didn't feel well, she stayed home and sewed for me!  She made me and some of my cousins Harry Potter robes.  She used a pattern that she bought at the Liberty Jane site.  It is by Miche Designs and is a really nice pattern.  Mom really likes Liberty Jane because the patterns fit my slim body so well and she can pay for them and download them instantly.

Here I am in my Gryffindor robe.  Mom did some research and learned that all the robes had a black lining until the third movie and then each house got a lining in it's own color.

See, here I am with my cousins, Kit, Naomi, Lizzie and me.  See, Lizzie is from Ravenclaw, so her robe is blue.  I just noticed that we are all blonds.

Mom got tired of sewing robes, so she took a break to sew me a new holiday dress.  She realized that I didn't have one this year.  This is from another Liberty Jane site pattern.  This pattern is by Heritage 4 and is called "The Wrap Top Dress."  It is a very versitile pattern because if you make it in a pretty cotton, it could be a sundress.  If you make it like Mom does, it is a fancy dress.


Here I am trying on the dress.  It is almost done, but not quite.  See, I have on my pants and loafers.
Mom made this dress before in orange.  This silver one will be nicer for the holiday season.

I'm really glad that my Mom sews.  I get some really neat clothes.

Do any of you have some pattern suggestions?

  1. I love it when Mama sews for us too, we have so much fun helping her pick out the perfect material and patterns for our clothes. We like to mix n match different patterns too, mama makes the top from one pattern with sleeves from another .. lol
