First up is Oliver + S pattern called Puppet Show Dress. The fabric is called Auntie Grace Ties One On. I suppose it was meant for an apron, but I like it just fine made up in this little dress. I really like the pattern and was lucky that I found it because it's out of print.
Second up is another pattern that's out of print. This one is called Bubble Dress and again, I was lucky to find the toddler size pattern. The next time I make this dress, I'm going to try and lengthen the bodice and dispense with the bubble part.
|It needs a boutique bow on the front. Project for later today.|
Third one up is called Jump Rope Dress, (view B). I lengthened the front placket by 1 inch making it easier to get in and out of. I have a lot of this vintage themed fabric left over so maybe I'll make a matching hat or dolls clothes.
|Ooops. It needs ironing!|
This one is the tunic top from the Ice Cream Social dress pattern. The fabric is vintage theme by Auntie Grace. I'm not really crazy about this outcome. But hey, I used up fabric!
|Heart wasn't in this one.|
Lastly, I just about used up all of this blue polka dot fabric. I think I bought it way back when Princess Diana made polka dots popular with her fabulous outfits. I also bought several meters of corresponding blue fabric and I plan to make a little blue jacket to go with this dress. Oh, and blouse too, but the blouse will be white.
|Tea Party Dress. 2T|
On the front tab, I used a quilting stitch and added piping as I did on the Tea Party dresses I made a year ago.
|Used rayon thread and quilt stitch.|
So that's it for this week. I have a few more projects in mind and plan to get started on them in a few days. Pressure is on right now to get as much sewing done before warmer weather comes and gardening chores call.
