Next up on the sewing queue: more kids' costumes.

Laurel's school is having its annual choir concert at the end of the month. I was asked if I was available to sew a few things earlier this week and got the bag of fabric, patterns and notions today.

In the next few weeks, I'll be assembling an above-ankle length lined A-line dress in chartreuse crepe with a bolero jacket in a coordinating sequined sheer (dress D and jacket B of Butterick 4385) and several royal blue print cheerleader jumpers with contrasting silver panels in the pleats of the skirt (McCall's 2855, an out-of-print pattern with girls' cheerleader and majorette costumes).

The polyester crepe may drive me nuts, but all the costumes will be cute as a button when they're done.
