Today was day 2! How are you feeling so far? Surprisingly I’m on a bit of a role, and made the oldest a new dress in about an hour. These fast projects are just what I like to give me the feeling of being accomplished. After all, the idea is to sew an hour a day for your kids. And sometimes, when a project takes longer then an hour, it’s tough to see the end of the road.
For this project I decided to use a soft double brushed poly and make it into a cozy hi-lo dress. This particular print is not longer available but this fabric is so soft and gives such a nice lightweight drape that I’d definitely recommend it for some summer sewing.
I used the groove dress pattern by MadeIt Patterns and cut out a size 6 with the size 10 length. And because this girl has had a fascination lately with dresses that ‘follow’ her as she walks I decided to go with the hi-lo option. This dress has great twirl factor. It was thoroughly tested as soon as she tried it on. And even without the twirl it still really nicely on her.
How are your projects coming along for the week? I still need to get to the boys now, even I’m definitely not sure what I’m making yet for them… Meanwhile, make sure you share your projects with us!
