When Jacob was little, I had quite the Gymboree addiction, which I tried very hard to quit by the time baby girl Megan was born. Luckily there was a Target close by when she was little so I managed not to spend an arm and a leg clothing her (for the most part) and she was always dressed very cute. Now, thanks to my sewing buddies, I have discovered the joys of Gymboree again. It is a lot more fun buying one or two pieces and sewing matching bottoms. Plus they fit, which doesn’t happen with store bought clothes.
I love the zebra heart line they had and probably bought more than I needed to (we only get cold enough to wear a sweater for like 4 weeks out of the year):
I felt pretty good after these, even though the zebra was a little wonky. They were not anywhere as fancy as some of the pieces sold on ebay and etsy, but they worked for Megan and she liked them. So with my Gymbucks in hand, I headed back the store to get something cute for spring.
Man, does she get a lot of compliments on her hippy jeans! If only people knew how easy they are; so much simplier than a twirl skirt with miles of ruffle. Last year I donated an outfit to the silent auction at the kids’ school, I am thinking I should donate some hippy jeans!
Now the question is, can I restrain myself from entering the store until the summer stuff comes out? Really, the kid doesn’t need any more clothes!
Note: I know my pictures suck. I am so jealous of those who take beautiful artistic pictures. I was never much of an artist and you can really tell here. So, please give me any pointers if you can!
