Got some time next week? I’ve got another sew-along planned! wahoo! ;} It’s called the Emma dress, after another one of my nieces!
I love using ric rac, and had so much fun playing around with the off-center front bodice and collar.
Man, Charlotte sure knows how to work the camera!
I get my ric rac from my equally fab sponsor, Ribbon Retreat!
The white fabric is just some quilting cotton from Joanns.
I am in love with this dress! Definitely one of my all-time faves.
For this sew-along, you’ll need:
1-2 yards of fabric (depending on the size of your child, 1 yard was fine for my 18-24 mo size)
ric rac (a few yards at least)
contrasting fabric for the collar and hem
thread and sewing stuff
vim and vigor (or, some energy, at least.)
I’ll also have a 18-24 mo pattern available to download (free of course!). Sorry I can’t do all the sizes for ya, someday perhaps! I will show you how to make your own pattern of course.
This sew-along will be a 3 Part series starting Tuesday, January 17th, and will end Thursday, January 19th.
There are no rules to this sew-along, it’s just a fun excuse to set some time aside every day and make a new dress! (probably 1/2 hour to an hour each day)
Can’t wait! Are you in?
