I'm glad to say I managed to finish a couple of projects. Yay me on the follow through.
My husband was recently out of town (his delightful and thoughtful wife gave him tickets to a NASCAR race in Charlotte, NC), and I can't sleep when he is gone. I just keep thinking how an axe murderer is probably prowling around the house and watching me through the windows, waiting for me to turn off the lights to make his move.
So, I sewed my daughter a dress instead of sleeping. It's the one on the right. I had seen these adorable dresses, so I decided to wing it. I modified a pattern I already had for a shirt to create an A-line dress with a high waist. I used some fabric I scored at the recent Fabric.com sale.
I am also proud to say I knocked something off the depressing WIPs pile in my sewing room, my old green and white print babydoll shirt which I turned into a dress for my daughter (on the left). It was so easy, just sewed a new back seam to make it smaller and re-attached the straps. Voila. This, of course, would have been more appropriate had I finished it in the summer, when it was added to the pile, but it will still work for fall with a T-shirt and leggings.
