My daughter came with me to Fabricland and she picked out the fabric for a Christmas dress.
Using Oliver + S pattern, Bubble dress, here's the dress. I'm pleased with the results.
And it looks good on Caitlin. It's size 2.
Because it has a capped sleeve, I ordered some sage green velvet from On-line fabric to make a shrug.
The order was sent right away and I will certainly use them again if I need to get something that isn't in my stash.
Using McCalls 5964 in size 2, I whipped up the shrug. It's a little small, so next time I'll make size 3.
The velvet is stretchy so for the lining, I used a stretchy fabric I found in the 'slinky' bin at Fabricland.
Mom likes the dress. Caitlin likes the dress. Grandma loves the fabric.
