It’s 3:45 a.m. I’m eating sour cream and onion chips and dipping cottage cheese with them. I sat here hand stitching for hours while I watched several episodes of Monarch of the Glen. I am staring at the girls’ dresses and am pleased.
Wednesday I realized that Sunday was Easter. I was in the middle of sewing for myself so I didn’t think about it. I just kept sewing.
This afternoon around 3 I started sewing. At eight I made a trip to Walmart for new pants for Nolan and nylons. Oy… The actual sewing was done before midnight but I sat here and dragged out the handsewing as an excuse to watch my show and relax after a long day.
Pattern: McCall’s 8675
Fabric: Fabric Traditions Daisies
Hairbows- Gerbera Daisies by Twinkly Tot Treasures
Our store only had one fabric choice in the green so I couldn’t have a contrast bodice but I do think the dress turned out lovely anyway. I found the fabric on Friday and bought it. Saturday morning I decided on the pattern. Of course I decided on a pattern that takes more fabric than I had so I had to buy a yard more of each one. I also lined the dress instead of facing it. I just thought that a skirt that heavy needs the weight balanced between the bodice and the lining.
They’re going to look adorable, don’t you think?
