Well, I went shopping over at Thousands of Bolts (and one nut or so they claim) and found this fabric. Isn’t it cute? I’ve found a cool pattern I wanted to use for my girls but there was a little bitty problem…. They’re skinny enough for it but they’re too tall. Andra can get by with a few pleats sewn deeper into the pattern and 6″ added to the dress. I hink Jenna will need the dress split in the middle too for length in the torso. Not sure yet. Playing with Andra’s first.
Oh, and I wanted sleeve-ish things too. I went for “caps”.

So I cut it out. Notice the fine quality and perfectly matching fabric weights I use to hold patterns in place when there are too many places to mess up if I don’t pin?
I added 6″ to length… cause you know it helps!
Voila… it’s ready for sewing. Stay tuned!
