I've been on Pinterest for a while now "pinning" like mad. However, putting said pins into action hasn't happened as much as I'd like. I'm definitely more a dreamer than a doer!
K's Jump Rope Dress with a full placket was inspired partially by one of my pins.

K, in fact, has been "pinning" all sorts of clothing and wants to my Preteen and Teen Clothing Inspiration board. I'm able to see what style of clothes she's leaning towards and can hopefully replicate a similar look when I sew her clothes.
Last night, I put another pinned idea to use.
It started with a jumper that used to be K's.
It's a velveteen jumper from Gap that's too nice to toss even though K had marked the bodice with a permanent marker. I'd tried repeatedly over the years (6!) to remove the stain but all I succeeded in doing was lightening it.
The jumper has been sitting in a basket in my sewing room that's filled with clothes that need mending. I'd thought to perhaps put an applique of some sort over the stain but inspiration hadn't struck...until last night.

Now, M and B will be able to wear the jumper!
