Well here is my first attempt to make little Elly a dress and my first cut into that fabric I bought a while back.
Blog Land is a great place for me to really think that my "fabric stash" eh hem...obsession...habit.....is...well..NORMAL! Ha! Anyway, thanks to this great blog, I found this site and promptly ordered several very cute little patterns, and... viola, the first creation! I want one for myself. She wore it all day yesterday and looked so comfy. Daddy put her down in it for night time. I am not sure whether it looked like a night dress to him, or if he was just too lazy. The laziness continued as she wore it grocery shopping with me early this morning. I think that is what these patterns are, comfy, livable clothes. (.....hmmm.... maybe I should be getting a kickback or something here.) Anyway, great patterns and an easy time sewing. There will probably be many more of these. The pattern goes up to 6 or 8 years!!!!! The sleeves are supposed to have elastic in them. I didn't have the right sized elastic, and thought it looked cute without it. Next time, I might try it for the more proper "peasant look".
