A girl, her dog, and some MC Hammer pants




Finally got stuck back into the sewing!
Project specs
Top:
Design #15, Ottobre Magazine 1/2005
Fabric: Cotton quilting fabric
Pants:
"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.

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

    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.
