One of Logan's best girlie friends turned 4 and had a party Saturday. She LOVES to dress up, so I made her a fancy dress up dress perfect for any little princess.
Lace-Up dress by Little Print Patterns. I added some trim to the bodice, lengthened the skirt and added a double layer of tulle as an overskirt. I thought about filling the overskirt with petals, but I've only seen that done on short skirts, so I wasn't sure about how it would look on a longer one. Maybe I'll try that out next time... It is made out of costume satin and tulle. Not my favorite fabrics to work with, but not too painful, since the design is fairly simple. Although I think it is pretty from the front, the real action is in the back!
Jalie Sweetheart Top in the kids size range. Fun!! And since I know Sister wants to know, I actually watched the clock as I made this one. From tracing the pattern to sewing the hem took slightly under 2 hours. I did have some machine trouble in the middle there and almost had to recut a sleeve that Janome nearly ate, so with smooth sailing I probably could have done it in a little less time, but not much.
