Hi Everyone! How are you?
I’m well. I have been sewing.
I also ordered some more fabric which is above. A nice bundle from Japan. For the red polka dots I am thinking of a Christmas day frock for Audrey
Here is the top I sewed for Audrey. She loves it.
I tried again with the same pattern and made a dress for Audrey. This time things went smoother! I took my time. I used new scissors and I put sticky tape on my machine for the correct seam allowance and that made all the difference. Everything was so neat and lined up perfectly.
The dress has pockets!!
** SQUEAL **
A little notched neck line cut out and faux capped sleeves.
I even lined up that bunny so it would be in the middle of the bodice.
I saw this fabric in a nearby quilt shop and took what was left on the bolt. It is Beatrix Potter toile.
Perfect considering I am having a love affair with toile right now!
I finished this one off nicely with 3 buttons. I have never done button holes before and my machine doesn’t have an option for them so I taught myself how to do manual ones! 2 on a tester scrap and I was ready to go.
The pattern even has an option for a pleated skirt. I need to try that next.
(And maybe do something NOT IN PINK!)
So what is new with you? I have, for the first time in m life, been LOVING the rain! My plants are going to be so great come spring!
Which is next week HURRAH!
