My silly kids!
With our weekend in Virginia Beach, there was no sewing time, and the next weekend didn't bring me any closer to my machines - her last competition was the American Championship next week in Myrtle Beach!
I finally was able to get back to some project I had cut at the beginning of the month. I finished Simplicity 1382 for Gracie - love the heart cut-out in the back!
Next up was Butterick 5980 - a special teal frock for her end-of-the-season cheer banquet plus church. I made it with washable formal fabrics. The butterfly fabric is sheer and layers onto the teal crepe. It's lined with a lighter teal lining and a teal tulle crinoline attached to the lining.
Here's something I didn't make - she EARNED! Gracie and her teammates got their national champion jackets for The ONE the day after the banquet!
At the moment, I am facing a variety of potential projects, but if anyone reading this sews for a younger or smaller girl than my daughter, check out my Etsy shop - MAJOR pattern de-stash there with some fantastic deals!
