I meant to start sewing for fall, but this was just too much fun to make. It's a Project Runway pattern - Simplicity 2943. It's a knit dress pattern with lots of cut options and a nice big area for embroidery. The kitty ( a great match for our silly Skippy) is from Stitch on Time.
I do intend to get back to some cooler weather outfits I cut, but this was so fun.
Also, I helped my boys finish their pillowcases yesterday. They did most of the sewing, but I serged (they are not ready for that kind of speed) and of course, the embroidery. They did help me design what they wanted on the embroidery. That was fun.
