zero waste (mama + daughter outfits)

Hellllooooo spring!!

During the long winter months, I took up sewing items by hand. I have never been good with a sewing machine, and while I hope to be one day, right now I find that I just don’t have the space or time to learn.

What I do instead is while Wilder is having a nap and Remy is having quiet time, I cut out patterns for clothing and I sew them. It takes me weeks to do it by hand, but being able to rest on the couch and watch Netflix for an hour or two while I stitch the fabric together is such a nice break in my otherwise long day.

The clothes are always something that we need. From dresses to shirts to shorts, we always end up wearing it all. I simply purchase a vintage sheet from a thrift store for usually $6 and under and from it, I get a few separate pieces of clothing. It’s sustainable living at its finest.

(You can see Remy’s black dress and my tan dress here, both of which I also made.) Have a lovely week!
