I finished Zara's turn on the #sewingrota.
A Liesl+Co Bento tee and City Gym shorts combo.
A Lekala hooded jacket
Another Lekala, this time a wrap skirt.
Yet another Lekala, a tee-shirt.
A pair of Vado slim fit jeans.
Named Alexandria Peg trousers.
A gorgeous Cynthia Rowley dress.
Another Burda camisole.
I think she made some lovely choices.
What I have learnt.
Sewing four outfits, for each of the older girls, is too much. Patience is not a strong point for teenagers and they want what they want, straight away.
Patience is not a strong point for tired mothers of wakeful toddlers either.
I really wanted to deliver an armful of beautiful clothes (and I hope I did) but they were already planning the next item when I wanted them admiring the one I had just finished, dammit!
We had some pretty horrid unpleasantness this time round. Both of us reacted badly (at times) and as I am the grown up I have to put my hand up and take the blame and sort it better, next time.
I felt a bit awful to find out that I was upsetting mum.
I agree with what she said above. I absolutely understand and agree with the idea to have only two outfits at a time. It will mean less of a wait for all of us for our turns.
I love all of my items that mum made me and am really looking forward to my next turn as it will be the making of my formal dress!
Although this was a pretty exhausting experience I think all three of us learned something.
For me, I need to accept a 'thanks' and move on. If I want a enthusiastic response, share it with my sewing friends.
For the Twins, Mum has feelings too and that they need to plan what they would like a little better and be better at communicating.
If you got through all that, well done!
