Summer Sewing: Thanks Melissa

The inspiration for these next 3 I credit to my obscenely talented friend, Melissa.

Wrap pants: Got a tutorial for these from Melissa. They are EASY, comfy, and stylin' summer pants and can be tied in the front or back. I have an extreme obsession with linen and linen blends this summer, so naturally I made these pants a stripe textured linen.

Elyette's Smocked Top: YES, more smocking. I apologize for the lack of a full and complete picture of it here (cute pic though). Using scraps from my easter shirt, I tried a version of this shirt (another wonderful idea from Melissa) out on Elyette first before trying one for myself (her cute little figure is much more forgiving). It looks a lot like that easter shirt of mine, so again we get to be "like twins".

My Smocked Top: LOVE the fabric for this one, and I'm quite pleased with how it turned out...heck I'm wearing it right now.

Yeah, I know what you mean. Often I can be seen sewing with Elyette on my lap (she does the back stitching for me sometimes:))and Jack attacking my foot, he thinks the pedal if fascinating. (yeah, so mostly I sew at night when I can).

Ok, Maegan, it's official, you are a super awesome women and mom. You go girl! You are awesome in sewing and seeing what you've made maybe I need rethink sewing clothes, because what you make is adorable, and you are so pretty in it. Also, thank you, thank you for your delicious meals, Grant and I scarfed the food down. I'm so impressed by all you do. You have talent everywhere...sewing, cooking, you are an awesome mom, and a awesome friend. Which reminds me, I badly want to come visit soon; it'd be nice for Edwin and I to go on an outing together.
