I get asked this question often. Either that question or "how long have you been sewing" are questions people ask when they notice something I am wearing.
So to answer those-
Yes I sewed a lot when the girls were little. I came across this photo yesterday for example.
My mother and father in law were celebrating an anniversary and the entire family was getting together for family photos. (Mike has 3 sisters who live locally and 2 brothers and their families who live in Alberta)
So, very pregnant with baby number 5, and with the assistance of Mike's sister, I seem to recall, I decided to make new outfits for them all. Baby Lauren was only a few weeks old in this photo, Erica 6, Micaela 5, Kate almost 4(it was close to her birthday), and Leah was 2 1/2. Yes I was nuts. I was also only 29!
I made dresses or outfits for them every Easter and Christmas. Here is a "what were you thinking?!" Christmas photo. They remember me saying " don't look at me, look at the doorway"! I loved that overalls that little Lauren was wearing. I used pink flannel for the lining and contrast and it was really cute as well as warm.
