KCW Day 2
Today I made Imogen a super simple a-line dress using the leftover material from my Mad Men Dress. I used the same pattern as I used to make her sewing dare dress but left off the pockets and the frill sleeves. I drafted a simple collar and added some small white love heart buttons. I really love the slightly 60s feel of this dress.
Imogen is not feeling the happiest today so I let her off a day of modelling. I can't wait to dress her in this though. I think it will look super cute! I think she needs a little white bow headband to go with it.
So I have figured out the one thing I don't like about sewing kids clothes. Teeny tiny little armholes! They are a right pain in the butt. Even with using my free arm these are too tiny to sew comfortably. But I managed to get them done relatively neatly so I am happy with that. But I think tomorrow I might take a break from sewing arm holes!
