I guess it's just a fact that I can't blog more than once a month (if that). I've been pretty busy. We went to the beach for 7 days. It was so enjoyable, restful and fun. When we went to Melbourne I bought beautiful, beautiful fabric - everything from summery, essentially Florida fabrics to new Christmas fabrics that I doubt I would find anywhere around here!
Before we left I had tested a pattern for Little Lizard Kings. As you see in the pictures above, it turned out beautifully. Grandbaby loves twirling in it! She didn't want to take it off! It stitched out so well. Directions were clear and easy to follow. It would be great even for a beginning sewer. Because of a teeny chest, I did put elastic to gather the front of the dress, which changed the integrity of the pattern. The next time I make it, I will adjust the pattern to fit my Emma. Go here for wonderful children's clothing patterns. See you next time with a new outfit I've made. I hope you like this one!
