Project Runway, Here I Come

Last time I attempted to make a garment, well except for my quilted jacket, I was so embarrassed by it that I wouldn't even wear it to the pool as a cover up! So, I was a little hesitant to get started on a jumper for Jenna, but I had the perfect fall fabric and I knew it was time. I took it to our bee work day on Monday and it took just about all day. It is fully lined (with the same fabric), and although Jenna fell in love with it that day, she hasn't put it on again since!


It was fun to make, and I would do it again for summer, but probably not fully lined. I think it will be perfect for the fall though, and super cute with with tights and a turtleneck (now I just have to convince her)!

It looks great and she looks fabulous in it.
I used to make a load of clothes for Gemma when she was younger, now however she wouldn't wear anything I made. Mind you she has started to hint about her Prom dress. Heaven help me

love and hugs Gina xxx

Looks great- you should sign up for P.R... and she could sign up as your model :) I don't know whether to feel blessed or sad that I don't have a girl to make clothes for. I don't care for many of the boy patterns that are out there.
