Mama Can Sew

Tuesday, June 12, 2012

So, many of you have been so sweet in loving on my shorts that I wore in this post.  My talented Mama, Carmen, made these shorts for me a few weeks back. My Mom is actually a Sewing wizard. Truth is, I have no clue how she made them. BUT, I know a good way to make them. I actually started doing THIS amazing tutorial a few months back, but have not gone back to the store and bought the liquid fabric adhesive, so I can't yet show them off yet.

Back story: These shorts are from when I was hmm...14 maybe? When I wanted sear sucker shorts so badly that after not finding any in women's or juniors, I bought a pair from the little boys section. True Life. Only one problem. These shorts are super high waisted, so I could never just wear a cute tank, always had to be a long top to go over. No problem though because I've had a long torso since I was 12 and could never find shirts long enough for me. 

My mom actually surprised me and made these shorts on her own. She was emptying my closet and cleaning up some of my old bedroom and came across these old shorts. She started the scallop shorts project and surprised me with them on Memorial Day weekend! Like seriously, how cute are they? I told you, she is a sew wizard!


Now, she is working on making me another pair, but light pink this time, I am so excited and can't wait to get them!

Now, I've found a few pictures from my thumb drive that I had from our rehearsal dinner slide show. Random, I know. But there are some pictures of me in a few other outfits that my Mom made for me as a little girl, and they are so good that I just had to share!


Both of the two outfits above are my Mom's creation! Yep, if you stare closely to picture on left, you seen I had matching socks too! I was a fashionista in the making at a mere 3 years old! Picture on right; everything including that hat was all hand made. She's got skills people! Can I have 1/3 of those genes? 


And here she is, the Sew Wizard herself! Love my Mama!


And don't forget about the super cool link up with myself and the lovely Jessica on Thursday !!

  18. SUCH cute shorts! Does your mama take custom orders ?! ;-) My sweet mom used to make me clothes when I was little too. Aaaaand why doesn't that skill gene get passed on automatically from one generation to the next I ask you?! Seems only fair...

  19. Those shorts are too cute! I love when mom's make their kids clothes. My mom made TONS of my clothing when I was younger and I should have learned from her. She also made me Minnie one year! :)
