I am so excited that I actually finished my 1969 girls dress the other day. Not so excited that I didn't get it modeled and photographed until almost dark last night, and am only attempting to blog it right now- but oh, well! Overall I am pretty happy with how it turned out, I guess. Excuse the dark and grainy photos, I wasn't organized enough to get the shots of this until almost bedtime. Oops.
Either way I am so proud of myself for following the pattern and it will be a nice warm dress for the fall- if she agrees to wear it! She is now refusing to wear any of the handmade clothes I have made her for school...apparently they aren't cool enough- even for preschool. I thought for sure I'd have at least a few more years before I had to worry about that! It certainly is weakening my sewing mojo...not inspired to continue sewing for her if the items just hang in her closet...hmm. Maybe this just means I should make something for myself next?
