Oh my gosh I love this top pic. What a nerd. She is SOO my child.
ANYways, here is another dress I made. Shocker, right? Who 'da thunk it? Jess, sewing a dress? Whaa?
Ok, ok. The simple truth is, I just can't get enough of making little dresses for my Sadester! Can you blame me? She gets so excited about a new one and looks so darn cute in them! It's an illness. And baby I don't want the cure!
This one I made altering the Rachel wrap-just wanted to play around with it's versatility. It's very versatile-ish. This time I did a button closure on the sides. (elastic loop on the inside)
Also I wanted to play around with some ric rac! I've only recently discovered the power of ric rac.
I get mine from my wonderful sponsor, Ribbon Retreat-this particular color is aqua.
I sewed it into the collar and sleeves-I loove how that looks! I also did some (box?) pleats instead of gathers for the skirt-I think it gives it a really fun vintage feel!
The gratuitous close up.
Buttons from Joann's. Oh! I bet you're wondering about the gorgeous fabric! (well, I think it's gorgeous) I got it from Fabric.com-but it looks like it's not available anymore. darn. Well, it's called In Love with Nature Bubble-in Off White. Maybe it's somewhere else online.
It was quite windy the day we went out for some pics, so we didn't stray far from the house. And that's why her skirt is blowing up like that. You can see I stopped the pleats where the skirt covers the front.
Totally ON purpose. Not because I still can't do correct math for the pleats. Nope, not at all.....
Don't worry.....OF course I'm planning a tutorial. ;} I gotcha covered. (though maybe not in the math department)
