You guys sure made me feel good with all the comments on my previous kindergarten wardrobe post. In fact, I loved all the sweet comments so much that it got me so excited to work on the next dress. So excited, in fact, that I just went to it, without using a pattern!
I love how this little wool dress turned out. Lined in a vintage sheet & decorated with some vintage doilies.
So, going along without a pattern, I did hit a few bumps in the road. Like, oh yeah, how is she going to get this on without a button or zipper.....neither of which I've figured out how to do yet. So midway through I had to cut down the back & add in this button w/ elastic loop so that she could actually put the dress on. It doesn't look as clean in the back....but I'm okay with that.
And another skirt that I actually made a month or so back. I love this style skirt with the band of printed fabric at the bottom.
Claire is feeling a little left out while I've been making clothes for Sadie. She's requested a dress of her own. A purple one. I guess I can do that. :)
