New Years Eve Dress

I can whip out an Oliver + S Bubble dress in no time.  From cutting out the fabric to hand stitching the bodice on the inside takes me about 2 hours.  Even modifying the Bubble Dress using McCall 5964 for the bodice and sleeves.  (Although I'm not completely happy with the sleeves.)

I've also got a love affair going with corsages.  It just seems to finish off a little girls dress.

I love how the lining floats with the outer fabric where the dress "bubbles".

At any rate, I'm sure my granddaughter will not be up at midnight with her parents on New Years Eve.  But I know who will be.....my grandson......for his 11 o'clock feeding.

Isn't he just the cutest little fellow ever?

I've got a huge container full of corduroy and his mom say's he needs overalls. Yeah! More stash bustin' projects for 2012!!
