Sewing For Grandaughters

Posted by susie53 (My Page) on

Anybody out there sewing for their grandaughters. I am getting ready to sew for all 3 of mine. I make them cute sundresses ( Butterick See & Sew pattern # 3889 ) and they love them. They always tell people when they comment on them that their Grandma made it. It is so much fun. They all have Spring birthdays so it makes it perfect. We had another new grandaughter ( one of twins 2 weeks ago ) and will have another one the last of April. Five grandaughters with Spring birthdays to sew for. Grandma will be busy.

RE: Sewing For Grandaughters

Oh, sure! I love sewing for them, and do a lot of it.

I started sewing for my own dtrs. Went from tiny little things all the way to their prom dresses and a wedding gown; now I'm back to little things! I still do make a few dress coats and fancy dresses for my girls if they have something specific in mind, but sewing for the little girls is such fun. All those trims, and ribbons, and bows, and appliques......

My little ones are girls almost 6, 5 1/2, just turned 4, and 2 months. Two little boys born to my sons 3 weeks apart will be two in May. I just made fleece jackets for them.

I've never done any quilting or made toys for my kids. Weird, eh?
