Sundress For Sadie
Last night while watching Project Runway, I decided to get all designerly myself & started making Sadie a dress without a pattern. I had it in my mind & just had to work through it & get it out. It's not perfect, but I'm happy with it. She didn't want to stop watching TV so that I could take a photo. Ha ha!
The fabric is from a tapestry bedspread that I bought on clearance at Target from their dorm room line a while back.
I used elastic in the back so that she could get it on & off easily. By the way, the notions wall is on sale 50% off at Joann's right now. I like to stock up on elastic whenever this sale comes up. I got a bunch of 1" no roll elastic for 50 cents a yard. I use elastic in skirts & pajama bottoms so it's good to stock up on.
And because I had the fabric out & in only takes about 20 minutes, I whipped up a little skirt for Claire in the same fabric.
They get really excited about the clothes that I make them & it makes me feel super happy.
