Casa's new, free, summer dress pattern, Leisurely. I changed the hem to a scallop to make it more seashell-ish. Miss E loved it and wore it all day. I used elastic thread for the first time, it was a little tricky for me, but it worked out just fine. I also used french seams everywhere so there's not a raw edge to be seen!
Okay, here's a better picture of the dress. The seashell fabric was the only kind they had at Joann's, it was on clearance, there was only a yard and a half of it left, and miss E thought it was beautiful! Yippee! Then we meandered around to find some coordinating material...perfect-stripes! I always enjoy making a birthday outfit to go with the cake theme that the girls choose. Here are some others from years past...here, here, here, and here.
So there you have it, my
Happy Memorial Day! I am so thankful for every ounce of freedom we have in this wonderful country of ours. xo ANG
