Sew stinkin' cute!5:43:00 PM
OK so I have to admit that I am a total
novice pro at sewing! lol! Well....what I really should say is this was my FIRST TIME EVER! A friend of mine said she could show me how to sew a dress for my girls and I had no faith that I would be able to do it! We found a cute dress tutorial here and went to work! I decided since my youngest daughter Ava Faith is a wee bitty of a thing I would start by sewing a dress for her! She is still wearing 3 month sizes! I found cute onesie style tank tops at our local Carter's store and my sweet, kind, very patient friend Elizabeth brought over some fabric she had and I also raided my pile to make the accent pieces.
The 3 month measurements were: 32" x 10" for the main portion of the dress. The belt we did 16" x 1 1/2" and for the bottom portion of the dress we used 16" x 4 1/2"
Here is how mine turned out:
**Please ignore the piles of stuff on the floor behind me! I am preparing a ton of stuff for NW Children's Outreach which is housed in our church and is a FABULOUS organization!!
