There’s nothing like a birthday sneaking up on you to push aside some self- indulgent paralysis. My niece Katie’s birthday is this Wednesday and I promised to make her a dress. I bought the Amy Butler fabric last summer (fabric 1 and coordinating fabric), but my plans were too ambitious for my then less than beginner skills. So as I type, I am pre-treating the fabric for cutting later on tonight. I have to trace the pattern as this is a mix and match pattern and I don’t want to lose any of the other views to just one dress. So this will be a new skill for me and I will use the tracing paper I bought online on Deepika’s advice, thumbnail sketch paper. I am using New Look 6821, view C+G+J.
Wish me luck! I’ll need it.
Happy sewing everyone.
