There’s a first time for everything, right?
Here is the first article of clothing I have ever made. Shorts for Jackson. They are so imperfect, it’s not even funny. I have a long way to go just to get better at sewing in a straight line. The hardest part was trying to get the hems on both legs to be the same length. And I didn’t. Not quite. And next time, I think I’ll try a print that doesn’t require matching at the seams.
But I figure they’re not too bad for my first time out, particularly considering that a three-month-old will be wearing them, and probably only for a few weeks before outgrowing them. They even have pockets.
The fabric was cheap, but special. Every time I look at these, hopefully I’ll smile, thinking of when Hudson would lay on her changing table, look up at the yellow crab stuffed animal hanging nearby and say “Cab!”
Oh, how I miss her.
