Yikes! Tuesday was so busy, I barely finished the dress. The skirt came together pretty easily and the pleating looks really great. I hand finished the neck and sleeves and then was so tired that I decided to roll hem the bottom on the serger. Frankie woke up this morning and was delighted! After dropping off her older brothers at school, we came home and had a little photo shoot.
it’s difficult some days to just feed my 4 kids, let alone sew for them! thank goodness for kcw (kids clothes week), the seasonal challenge that really sparks the creative fire.
for day one i decided to delve into my stash of vintage patterns and found this lovely mccall’s gem to sew for my 3 year old daughter, frankie.
cute pattern, cute dress, strange text…
i decided to use a vintage print with red piping. i was able to cut it out and sew the bodice together in my hour. i really love the cherry red piping & facing. i can’t wait to see it finished tomorrow!
