Late as usual
I think I have definitely started an unfortunate trend with my SEWN gifts the last year with everything coming late, sometimes months late. Thank goodness Baby Chloe is small!
My niece Katie’s birthday party was this past weekend and I had only managed to order the pattern, and buy the fabric and trim for her dress. I am pretty excited about this dress. I just love the cotton print I picked up with my Living Social coupon last week. Remember this gorgeousness?
I found the perfect pattern to showcase this fabric. With a fabric so bold and colorful, the dress pattern should be very simple with few design lines to cut up the print. The fabric will be the star of the dress. I have had good luck with the Simplicity/New Look patterns for kids in the past and found this great canvas for my paint, NL 6504, and it’s on sale right now!!!
I’m making View A which is on the model, but without all that applique crap. Katie is a very mature, sophisticated 6-year-old. I think she is way above wearing applique at this point. 😉
I cut it out last night and, after I pay a little visit to P&S at lunch today for some thread to match it, I will sew it up tonight.
Hey, I just realized that Katie’s actual birthday is this Saturday. So maybe, her birthday dress won’t be late after all. Of course, I could be jinxing myself now.
