While looking for the cover art for this pattern I discovered it is out of print. I have made dresses for M before using this pattern and she has grown a ton since I cut out the 3. So I had to make the pattern bigger.
There is also something weird that goes on in this pattern at the armpit seams so I ended up putting in little armpit gussets because she could not even get her arms into the dress.
And really isn't that the point of bothering to make your own clothes so you get what you want?
Speaking of wanting things out of fabric, I think M might become a sewer or crafter one day herself. She love playing with my fabric. I had my new stuff out this morning to get started on and she was shopping through it and telling me how much she loves it all. And was carrying around her favorite fabric until I made her get her shoes on for school.
On another note HALLOWEEN is FAST approaching. Are you ready? We all got to do a test run of our costumes last weekend at the Octo-Boo festival at the school. It was super fun and all our costumes where a big hit. I am excited to get to wear them 2 more times! Well M has been wearing hers every day so hers needs to be washed really. Here she is wearing some of the parts of my costume.
Don't forget the big party in Decatur Square on Sunday!! If you see a lady in a big pink wig with a girl in a monkey suit and a scarey but suave vampire, come say hi to us!
Peace Out - Chrissy
