She chose a dress---
Then I measured her and put her down for a nap.(that was part of the deal!)
When she woke up the dress was ready for her!
I did change it up a bit by adding the band at the bottom. The pattern also had some directions that I changed up for ways I thought would give me a more professional looking dress.
Since it is the end of summer I decided to make the dress a little on the generous side is she can wear it for a couple of years. She loved it, although she didn't want her picture taken!
Back in the day(since about 1969) I mainly sewed clothing, first for myself while in junior high and high school, then for my boyfriend(now husband), then my kids. After the kids got a little older and didn't want homemade clothes except for the occasional skirt, I moved on to crafts, and now to quilts. It was fun to try my hand at this again! I'm hoping if Clara spends enough time in my sewing room that she'll sew with me someday!!
