I'm joining Elizabeth this week to talk about stitching and reading.
There is not too much going on in the sewing department this week. I made this cute little dress for Faith over the weekend. At least she thinks it's cute. It's Simplicity 2377 and it was very easy to sew. Even while listening to an audiobook.
The fabrics are not my taste, but they are hers. Always the conflict there. But I told her it could be a play dress, and let her choose.
I wish now that I had not let her choose a stripe because the stripe lines in the fabric do not always line up with the pattern lines (like at the waist above the red piece). It's symmetrical but not straight, know what I mean?
But, it's a play dress, right? She really doesn't need another article of clothing or I'd be tempted to make it again in something I like. Next year.
I am going to attempt to make myself another skirt. I already tried twice with this pattern, and found out too late, that unlike children's clothes, which always run large, and in which I always make at least one size smaller than her off-the-rack size, this pattern runs small. Really small. I am going to try again with this turquoise embroidered fabric.
I am listening to the The Vow, The True Events That Inspired the Movie. It's interesting, though if you saw the movie (I did not) I've been told the real story is not the same, exactly.
