It has been too long since we have had good pictures taken. We finally got a session with the photographer I last used, they fill up so fast. While we waited our turn I got a few of the girls to share.
I made this dress at Camp last month it is a Children's Corner "Rose." It is a great pattern, good directions and true to size. It does run too small in the neck. Luckily I tried it on before I made the button holes. I was able to unstitch the yoke lining and use my rotary cutter to trim off 1/2 inch and now I think it fits nicely. I did fussy cut the entire dress to center the design, so it changed the yoke alignment a little. Reese hated wearing it so it will be Abby's dress from now on. My sweet Abby will wear anything and loves a loose girly dress! Reese wants to dress like a teenager. She hates puffy sleeves....and these were not! So she decided she hated the ric rac. At least they wear the same size.
I picked up my samples from the shop today because October is on MONDAY!!! I had Reese try this on really quick to check the fit before I make the other one. It was perfect! I used The Handmade Dress "Madeline" pattern yoke and sleeves. I added 1" length to the neckline so that I could ruffle it with a casing. I also made the sleeves much longer and flared at the bottom. The second one I will make them even longer I think. Hopefully I will get it done this weekend so they can wear them next week....and every week for the whole month! I am considering taking off the ric rac and applique after to add lime green accents but we will see how that goes. ;) The applique is a Planet applique design.
