Friday Fun Day

Friday started with me dropping my daughter off at the university.  I had to wait around for her, but couldn't park on campus so I took off to the library.  I found a few books -- a Victorian romance, a fashion book, and a sewing hints book -- that I am looking forward to flipping through.  After a lunch of leftovers, she left for class and I spent some time in my craft room.  I sewed this cute little summer dress for my youngest niece.  Her parents had mentioned to me that she needed summer play dresses.  I'm waiting to hear if this is similar to what they had in mind.  Everything for it came from my stash.  It was a fun sew and if they like it, I want to make another.

  1. I love the flare cut! Is this a knit material?

    1. It's an adorable little dress. It isn't knit fabric.

  2. Sewing for little ones is so much fun, isn't it? And you can complete an entire dress in one afternoon!

    1. It is fun! One of the things I do to "speed up" the process is keep something cut out. Often I find time in the evening to cut out the next project. If I can just grab it and sew throughout the day I feel like I accomplish so much more.

    1. Thanks. I used a bit of fabric I had purchased some time ago. At first glance it seems bright, but I love the patterning.
