party dress

While Scott was at pheresis and Jesse was rollerblading yesterday evening, Leah and I sewed a dress. She's been wanting to do this for a while and has been working up to it with doll clothes for Lucy, the Magic Cabin doll I made for her when she was a toddler. For a pattern, we used the handmade dress sent to her by a woman we met in Alaska last summer. The fabric is from my stash. It was slippery to work with, so we used lots of pins and the seams aren't quite what they should be. I'm sure we broke all the sewing rules and did a lot of things the "wrong" way, but I'm also sure she learned a lot along the way and is thrilled with the results (see spontaneous bathroom dancing above), so mission accomplished. Posted by Picasa

Seams are on the inside and not seen anyway. Just keep twirling and no one will notice. Beautiful!!!!
