Have you just longed to do something?
Were you a little cautious
because it was something
you've never done before?
Christmas was coming up
and I wanted to do something
for The Princess
something that didn't cost a lot
but yet she would still like it.
|Rolling out Pizza Dough|
Rummaging through my fabric stash
can you guess what I found?
A pillowcase still in the package.
Ah, the girl loves a dress!
Wheels were turning in my tired brain,
made it easier and soon I had a dress.
|The arm hole|
Because it looked HUGE,
I looked up an old friend,
cut a yoke
and refashioned the dress
|Old Friend: Seam Ripper|
|Pleats and Piping on the front|
|Ruffles at the hem|
|The Princess and her dress|
Her Momma reported she said "AHHHH" right before she demanded to put it on. My thought is for her to wear a long-sleeved shirt underneath for winter wear. Only declared that she wanted a pillowcase dress, but that project will have to wait for another day for now.
Have you ever started a project with clear direction and changed it in the midst of it? Were you pleased with the outcome or wished you stuck with the original plan?
I want to thank Susan at Freshly Picked
for posting her easy to follow tutorial,
giving inspiration and encouragement,
and the chart for Standard (American) Dress Lengths
that made making this dress much easier than it could have been.
