sewing: twill art museum vest and trousers, plus a simple skirt "IndyWatch Feed Craft"

This post is written by Jane of Buzzmills.

Ive been wanting to sew my son a suit for years now. Its just that, when I think about sewing a blazer, it never seems quite practical. I mean, realistically, he wouldnt get much wear out of it before it became too small for him. But, matching twill art museum vest and trousers, well that makes a bit more sense as I can totally see him wearing a vest on multiple occasions.

This occasion happened to be for a trip to the art museum.

The trousers were also worn for Easter.

And both will be worn for an upcoming wedding. Already, its making sense.

I used the light blue cotton twill from the shop for the ensemble. The fabric is light weight with no stretch, and it worked perfectly for making this Spring suit. The color is a really beautiful shade of light blue. While the art museum lights toned the color down a bit

You can really see the true color in the picture below.

Its such a pretty Spring color.

I used the Oliver + S art museum patterns for the vest and trousers. Its been a while since Ive sewn an Oliver + S pattern, and as usual this pattern did not disappoint. The instructions and construction were both fantastic.

I sewed a size 7 for both the pants and the vest; both worked well. The pants have plenty of room to grow. Though the vest, to me, seems a bit on the short side.

How to make a framed poem decorated with dried flowers

You need a photo frame, pressed and dried flowers, a poem you love (or find an interesting one on the internet) to print onto a colored sheet of paper and white glue.

 Print the poem first. My photo frame is for photos 4x6" (10x15 cm) so I adjusted the size prior to printing. I also printed it first to see what it would look like with the selection of flowers I chose for it and worked on the lines.
As you can see, the poem stretches down to the end. Play with it to get the most pleasant look meaning that you choose the font and toy with the lines.  
When you have the poem printed, work on t...

The Magic of These Good Old Days (An Art of Homemaking Post) "IndyWatch Feed Craft"

The other morning I dropped my girls off at school.

As I watched them walk into the building I heard the words of a song on the radio:

I wish somebody would have told me babe
Some day, these will be the good old days

Just then Grace turned around at the door and waved

I held my breath.  I tried to remember everything at that moment.  And then I drove away.

Its not the big thingsthe award ceremonies, the performances, or the vacations that hold the magic (although they are wonderful things)its in the small minuta of everyday life where it...
