Sneak Peek – Birthday Dress

2010 June 15
by elizabeth_admin

Well, I am at it again.  Drafting, that is.  Well, I wish it was me alone, but I definitely needed Thea along for the ride this time.  Together, we drafted a simple little girl dress.  I knew what I wanted and could see it in my mind’s eye: a shirred empire waist bodice, spaghetti straps that tied, a contrast band at the bottom with a lace hem. 

Here’s a sneak peek of my niece Haley’s birthday dress…

More on the construction and full pictorial disclosure after the gift is given this weekend.

Happy sewing everyone!

    This is looking ever so cute – oh for a little girl!

    By the way, in my latest post I have tagged you in a game of 8 questions if you want to play!
