I really wasn’t planning on making up a new pattern for a dress today.  But it happened anyway.

Twirling. I did not wake up this morning with plans to draft a new pattern... But the muslin turned out so great I think she is wearing this on Easter. Yay!

And today ended in twirling.  I think it’s still a win.  Now, about all those things I didn’t do today…

    So cute!! We love twirly skirts around here (and I have two more to make and put on easter dresses… one down). Sleeves. Must discuss. Handsewn?

      Sleeves? Yes. Finished the lining by hand. But I’m only sewing for one 🙂 I cheated a little this time though. After I attached them I just serged the whole armhole, and then turned the serged edge under and tacked it to the lining. It’s not as nice as a real finished sleeve on the inside, but I wasn’t really planning on doing this today. Or doing sleeves like that either. It was kind of a last minute change… I know you know what those are like.

    Love it! Love Flicka Ricka And Dicka as well as Snip Snap Snur. We have quite a few of the books too. Yummy bread and butter. We will have to try making the butter, already have the bread down. Have fun twirling!
