I cut this out last year. I know. It is a really cute dress pattern but ended up being much more fussy than I enjoy. In fact I think when I started sewing on them I had to rip out the yoke twice. Ripping out seams does not a happy mama make. I HAVE to sew them up soon or the girls will have outgrown them before they get a chance to wear them.
Aren't they sweet? But oh, look at all those ends to weave in not to mention having to sew all 143 of them together and edge it. It seems to be baby season around here and these precious little gems are destined to a sweet friend at church that is having a little girl. I can't wait to see it all put together. Only 100 more to go.
I started this a few days ago. (See what I mean, A.D.D). A couple from church is trying to adopt their first child. She mentioned the other day that the colors of the nursery were grey, yellow and white. I knew immediately what I wanted to do for her. Thankfully this particular project is working up really quickly. Whew!
I made a little stop into Jo-Ann's today to sit and look at the pattern books. Its really a shame how few patterns there are for girls in the "tween" stage. I guess most girls at that age do not want their mothers to sew for them. I guess I will be trolling the internet for vintage patterns. I found a few for myself that I am excited to try. Anyhoo, Tutti Fruitti Fabric was on sale and I love the way it washes and wears. This year the selection was great. I came away with a yard of each for either shorts or a quick skirt to sew for the girls. A trip to Target or somewhere for a solid color shirt and we have a few new summer outfits.
I have 2 more items to start for people that are either adopting or currently pregnant but those will have to wait. Maybe...
