Yesterday I started making a blouse for my little girl, and I kind of liked the way it turned out.. (it's in the washer now, will blog it tomorrow)
My mother also sew some clothing for me while growing up, mostly to costume parties. It was natural for all of the kids in the neighbourhood to dress up in homemade garments for costumeparties and schoolplay,but it didn't mean we liked it!
I remember once I played a munk, wearing a brown stretch sheet for a rope.. Not my proudest moment. And the play was taped!
I was also lucky enough to be dressed up as one og the Beagle Boys from Donald Duck with a flower patterned hat made from a kitchen curtain or tablecloth. I think I was about seven, and one of the older boys made fun of me!
Now that I'm grown up, it's just cute ;)
Then the question; did you wear homemade clothes while growing up, and how did you feel about it? And do you still sew clothes for your own children, or would like to?
