Sometimes good. Sometimes bad. Sometimes... just homemade.

I have such a difficult time finding cute knits for boys. Cute knits for girls are everywhere! Boys not so much. I'm also having a hard time finding rib knit in the colors I want. 

I did make this cute little outfit yesterday using some knit from the new collection by Patty Young. The colorway is almost all bold girly but there are a few that can go either way (lots of stripes and dots). The quality is great but I managed to mess it all up with a combination of sloppy sewing and not using a proper needle choice.
You can't really tell by these photos but trust me, it looks homemade. I'm okay with that... on this outfit. Sometimes it really pisses me off. Oh and I also forgot to sew on the cute little oval patches for the knees that I had so nicely cut out. Damn that sewing fairy. She's a sneaky one. I'm going to have to have a little talk with her about some of her recent shenanigans.

Wow - this outfit is stunning! I know you hate it, but it looks so darling. The bold stripes and colors are so freaking cute and modern! Last night was my second sewing class. We were actually allowed to TOUCH a machine...I think sewing on knits is a ways out for me, but you're constantly an inspiration to me!

Don't be so hard on yourself! The outfit looks really cute....practice makes perfect....or something closer to it, every time.

Oh that is just adorable. Who cares if it's not perfect. (And you know I only say that because it wasn't me making it ;)

I need to get my rear in gear and work on some knitted stuff for the girl who won't wear anything else. You are always an inspiration.

This outfit is truly adorable, I don't see any "homemade" about this goodie.
I just used this ( http://www.flickr.com/photos/figgyskids/4769644880/in/pool-1362162@N23/ ) to make one of tees from the Patty Young stash but I would love to see more boyish knits out there in the big world of fabric. Come on designers wheres the boy goods!

Are you using only the serger? You know you don't have to. :)
