Wednesday's Works...

Sunday night I decided that Mason and I needed new outfits to wear to Camden, so I made these. A romper outfit for him and a skirt for me. Sorry for the pics, my camera is getting old and is very temperamental when it comes to inside photos.
Ignore the wrinkles, I took the pics after he wore it.
And my skirt... it's ankle length with an elastic waist and double ruffle hem. I love this fabric, put it in the washer and dryer and it came out beautifully and doesn't seem to wrinkle. It's a reproduction(1840-1860 coverlet) print that I found at Marden's.
And here is my work in progress... I got this drop side crib from a little old man who didn't know what to do with it because you can't sell them anymore. So I got it for free. I took off one side and I'm in the process of spray painting it a buttercream color. It will be a sitting bench for somewhere in my yard.

The thing is soaking up the paint, I used three cans already and I need to buy more. Hopefully I can get it done tomorrow, that is if I feeling like making the trip to Walmart for more paint ;)

Have a lovely day,



  1. Very sweet little romper. And I love skirts for summer-so much cooler.
    I used to sew matching dresses for my daughter and myself. It was so much fun!

  2. The romper is adorable. Nice job on the skirt. I can't wait to see the new garden idea.

  3. I've wanted to try my hand at skirt making, love yours, what pattern did you use? And I've always wanted to make a seatee from a old crib, can't wait to see it done!

  4. I love Rompers on babies. Seems to me that now days they aren't used much. Everything must have snaps for convenience. Yours is lovely as is your skirt.

  5. I saw you won a prize and looked you up. The baby bed has lots of possibilities, so be sure to post when you are finished. I love anything sewing and old stuff. And gardens. And blogs.

  6. Oh Tiff, I'm happy to pop back in to visit your blog-I haven't been on the computer for awhile and I always love to read EVERYTHING you have to write. I love hearing about family, thoughts, and your house is something I just swoon over.

    The romper is too cute and I can't wait to see the crib and the 'secret rose garden.'

    Hoping you and your family are doing well. All the best, friend!
