The boys are getting all fancy with their vests. We need three fancy dresses for the girls to match.
I used Simplicity pattern 9497. Deborah helped me with the first dress. She cut it out and sewed the bodice. It was so fun having her here for a few days to help me out! I finished the 1st dress and got the 2nd dress cut out and sewed and the third dress is all cut out. I can't wait to sit down and sew it.
Tools: Same as for any sewing project. Pattern, fabric, pins, scissors, sewing machine etc., no extra bit of blue required for this project.
Here is the beautiful bodice. When I saw it I instantly thought "Cinderella."
Small dress. I need to make the small dress longer, but I think I will add some tulle or something to it. Plus I need to add white ribbon sashes to all the dresses.
Large dress, all cut out and ready to sew. A project for another day.
