I hope you are all having a lovely weekend, unlike me who has two icky sicky children throwing up and laying on every piece of furniture with their miserable yet cute selves.
In the midst of all this nastiness, I thought I would post up a dress that I sewed recently for KikoiPatterns. Susan the owner offered for me to try her new Red Dress pattern and since I had enjoyed the Polkadot Dress Pattern so much, I was ecstatic to do so.
I sewed up a size 4t in a crinkled pink knit that lily chose for herself. It was quite sheer and even though I enjoy layering, Lily does not. So to fix this I cut a second pattern out of a cream jersey knit, basted each pattern piece together, and continued to put the dress together following the pattern. I found the pattern to be very similar to her Polkadot Dress Pattern. It had nicely photographed steps, easy instructions, and the final product looked clean and beautiful.
I'm off to enjoy coffee with some local seamstresses to plan free sewing classes in the Des Moines (Iowa) area.
If you happen to live near me (a remote chance but hey, you might)
let me know if your interested!
