A Weekend Dress
This morning Scott took Creamie to play at grandma’s house. And two minute after they left I started sewing. I just bought this pattern and this morning I started making Creamie a 4th of July dress.
Red is not my favorite color. Like at all. I had this red fabric in my stash left over from a bag I made for my sister. My sister likes red. Anyway, I thought it was perfect for the 4th of July. I kind of think the flowers look like fireworks.
Just a few hours after I started sewing it was done. Nothing like making a dress before lunch to make you feel successful! And a summer dress wouldn’t be complete without big pockets to put rocks in. Creamie loves rocks. And rockets… and she thinks they are the same thing. So she’ll find a rock and fly it through the air making a rocket noise. I love it.
Dana’s info on shirring and using elastic thread was so helpful and this was such an easy project. I’ll be making more of these dresses, for Creamie and for me! And I’m going to go stock up on elastic thread. That stuff is amazing.
Scott and Creamie are still playing at grandma’s, so no pictures yet of her wearing it. But there will be plenty from the weekend’s festivities I am sure. I’m adding this project to Sew&Tell at Amy’s. Happy Friday!
