Getting around to it

I guess this week is all about finally sewing those projects that I have been meaning to, but never got around to it. I have had THIS pattern for a long time and I decided yesterday to whip out one for Na-Nat. It took about 1 hour from start to finish.

Things I noticed, the pattern runs small. My daughter is in 2T and I made this dress 3T thinking she could wear it longer. Nope, it fits her perfectly right now. Also, next time I make it I am going to lower the front collar a little bit because the ruffles cover her chin sometimes.

The pattern is for intermediate and the instructions are really easy to follow. I love this simple button loop on the back.














Here is a close up of those cute ruffles in the front.
















I also made a black flower pin to spice up THIS red dress.

One hour for you about three for everyone else. You are the fastest sewer and best pattern reader. Most people are not at your level.
