I used the MADE Simple Skirt Tutorial again
These are very simple skirts but I tried to focus on making them perfect. I learned to apply bias binding the "correct" way, ever seam is was finished on my serger, and they even have their own little embroidered tags. I hope these will be as fun to wear as they were to create!
I also cut out pieces last night to make a blouse version (view B) of the Family Reunion Dress. I am pretty nervious about cutting my "expensive" fabric for this dress ($15.99/yd. is considered expensive @ this point in my sewing journey). This blouse will be my trial run for getting it right the second time around.
I used freezer paper to transfer the 2T size onto the fabric. What a great technique! No pins, no tracing on fabric--and best of all I preserved the pattern entirely. With children's patterns it is more than necessary to make more than one size! Poor Lydia will be wearing these dresses for a while :)
I found really sweet anchor buttons and bought the rest of the notions this afternoon to get started on that.
-well you get the idea-
-total cuteness...hopefully not too cutesy-
