A girl, her dog, and some MC Hammer pants

Finally got stuck back into the sewing!
Project specs
Design #15, Ottobre Magazine 1/2005
Fabric: Cotton quilting fabric
"Desert" pants, design # 17, Ottobre Magazine 1/2008
Fabric: Light-weight denim

Both were really quick sews, about 3 hours each all up, including doing the fiddly topstitching. I'm rather happy with the top, but I'll confess: the pants are a leetle bit too 'MC Hammer happy pants' for my liking. Still, Grumbles gives them a sticky thumbs up and requests to wear them everyday, which either means that she really really really likes them or that she has no taste.


  1. The cuteness is so much I can hardly stand it.

  2. Gorgeous outfit and gorgeous girl! She looks so much like her Mama :)

  3. The top photo is so adorable. Love the top and the botttom, they look great!

    Are you still opening a shop on Etsy??

  4. Your daughter is just beautiful and she looks so happy.
    She's obviously enjoying a bit of "Hammer Time".

  5. what a cutie pie grumbles is. She doesn't look like she grumbles at all! Does she look more like you or the galumph?

    I think she could model the rowan patterns for them!

  6. very cute. i sewed me some hammer pants back in 8th grade--it was a lone cool moment in an otherwise mediocre wardrobe experience.

  7. Thanks for sharing your experiences with all of us. boo the dog
