Sharing this project that my 10 year old daughter made with just a little bit of help from me!
I think she did a fabulous job sewing it up! The pattern is from Birdiful Stitches and was very easy to follow.
I (Suzanne) also made a Garden Party Dress for KCW last week. Turned out fabulously! This is the second Oliver + S pattern I've made and I do love working from them.
|I need to move the loop and button up!|
Not quite the scenic pictures as Alisa posted but we're planning a trip to the Fraser Valley in a few days so we'll get to see the mountains in all there glory! Very excited to see all our family there too!! Maybe we'll even get a picture of our girls in their Garden Party Dresses :)
We had a little photo shoot on the way home from church so you can see the Garden Party Dress in action. Nothing like the backdrop of Mt. Cheam and a gorgeous spring day for a good photo!
I made a size 6 with a size 8 length and it fits with room to spare. She is very slim and actually measured slightly less than the size 5 measurements.
Fabric is from Fabricland. It was actually $1.50 per metre bought this past fall on a sale. The coordinating fabric was from a fat quarter bought at Hamels but I only used a small part of it. So the fabric for this dress was only $4!
The pattern was easy to follow.
This week these two are going to be 5 and 7 years old. Good thing I have Joshua!
I enjoyed sewing through Kids Clothes Week but this week I have to get back to some other stuff. Have a good week!
Alisa: Hello there! How's everyone doing with Kids Clothes Week? Today I sewed for just over an hour and made the back of the Oliver + s Garden Party Dress. Maybe I can squeak a bit of time in tonight on it too. Loving it so far!
Suzanne: I finished tracing all the bathing suit pieces (11 x 3!) and got one cut out. Still feels like I have nothing to show for it but most of the hard work is done!
I also have to share what else I was doing today. Working on this custom quilt - absolutely love how it's turning out!
