Making Clothes

Well, it is that time of year again for us. We go through our closets and drawers and see what fits and what doesn't and then where we need to fill in the gaps. We decided to start today, as we will be going to Florida in September to visit Ralph's Dad (he will have his 75th birthday while we are there) and we wanted to make sure we had enough clothes to last us while we are there and that it was all presentable.

Anyway, Alicia, Hannah, and I took stock of our clothes and saw where we needed to fill in the gaps. Both of the girls are growing, so there was quite a need this year. This afternoon, I cut out three skirts and 6 blouses. Hannah cut out 10 handkerchiefs. Tomorrow we will cut out 2 dresses, 1 jumper, 2 vests, 3 aprons, and 3 nightgowns. Hannah will cut out about 2 dozen more handkerchiefs. She enjoys doing embroidery work on them.

Next will come the fun part...the assembling. I love to sew and the girls are learning to enjoy it too. I will try to take some photos as we work and then maybe have the girls model some of the finished clothing.

Once we return from Florida we will have to make some more winter clothes too. But that will have to wait until late September. :)

Psalm 45:13"The King's daughter is all glorious within; Her clothing is interwoven with gold."
