|I think this is some kind of magnolia|
|My husband and his Dad (who turns 89 this June)|
One of the things I wanted to do when I quit work was to make things for my girls. I made them all Valentines gifts, see those here. This past few weeks have been spent making dresses for my Granddaughters.
I originally was going to make dresses from the same pattern, but, Cora is so petite that was not going to work. I chose the Oliver and S, Ice Cream Social Dress for Sophia and a Simplicity pattern (2668) for Cora.
The original fabric I purchased a while ago did nothing for me so I used some that I more recently purchased!
Here is the lovely Sophia modeling her new dress. "Put on" was her response when she saw it and then she did not want to take it off!
|She is saying Cheese!!|
|She likes pockets|
Here is Cora's, I have some finishing to do so no pictures of her in the dress.
|button and elastic is coming|
The pattern called for a zipper...I really don't like zippers, especially on children's clothing. So I made a small placket and will sew a button and some elastic (using a hair elastic) for a loop.
The fabric is from Pillow and Maxfield, the Oh La La collection!
Working on other things too, but already this week seems overwhelming, hit the ground running after 3 days away...yikes.
Have a great week.
