Summer Sewing

 It's hard to believe the summer holidays are almost over, it feels like we only just started them. There hasn't been a lot of time for sewing this summer, but I did manage a few things over the weekend for the girls.
A new jumpsuit for Olive - from Ottobre 4/2011 (yes again!).
 McCalls 6733, which I have made before, for the twins. The straps are meant to be attached at the back, but I made them a little longer so they could tie them at the neck.
McCalls 6951 for Eva. This was the first time I have made this pattern and as it goes up to size 14 I am sure I will be making a few more of these. It goes together really well and the instructions are good.
The back is quite long, but that is easy to fix if the girls want it a little shorter.
Crossing fingers I can get a little time to sew a Sutton blouse I cut out last night for me.

I totally agree with Jodie! Love Eva's red checked top with her jeans shorts. Before you know it those girls will all be sewing their own clothes, right?
