Dressing Up

I enrolled in the Small Crafts class that I first mentioned over a month ago. Not every craft is for me, but I've really enjoyed it thus far. It's great fun to see what these two super-talented ladies come up with! This dress I made for Charlotte is a take on one of Rachel's tutorials.


Her's doesn't have the panel with the ruffle going down the center. That was necessary on mine because even though I really loved the brown toadstool fabric and wanted the entire dress to be made from it, I only had a fat quarter's worth of it and that definitely wasn't going to be enough. So I hacked her pattern and was able to make this using that brown toadstool fat quarter plus an orange floral fat quarter. And I have very little fabric left over!


My work hours haven't been cooperating, so while Charlotte has worn the dress, it's never been during times where I could get good photos of her in it. Maybe over the weekend. It'd be perfect over a white tee with her wannabe Ugg boots at the pumpkin patch.

P.S. Let's not even discuss how many hours it spent to make this thing, mostly because of where I deviated from Rachel's plan. Suffice it to say, I don't really think very far ahead on these projects.

P.P.S. Can we also ignore the crappy photography and poor attempts at making color adjustments in Photoshop. We can? Great!

I just asked Marie to show us a picture with the body inside...I came here hoping to see Charlotte modeling. You did a great job modifying it Katie...the ruffle is really cute, and I'm sure the colors look super cute on her.

I hope you are making Penelope's Christmas present - based on this I will really like them. 'Cause, my goodness, these kids don't need any more toys.
