On Monday I was very excited to get some sewing done…I haven’t done any for a while, and after going to JoAnn Fabric’s last Friday (and buying more fabric, of course!) I wanted to SEW!
The dress I was working on happened to be for Charissa. Kind of as a practice to see if I could get a certain pattern to work. I had seen this pattern at JoAnns and liked it very much. But alas! That particular JoAnns is a small store, and did not have that pattern in stock!
So I found one kind of like it at home, enlarged it, and attatched a skirt and shirt to make a dress. Charissa wears a size 8 and the pattern was a size 4 so it needed enlarged a lot! The first one was the wrong size for Charissa, a little too small. So that one is going on Etsy 🙂 It is just like the one I am about to show you, only a smaller size. Once I finally figured out how to enlarge the pattern, it went a lot quicker. I finally finished the dress at about 9:00ish Monday night.
Then yesterday evening I took pictures of Charissa in her new dress 🙂 I love this dress because it slips right over the head and is so simple but pretty!
We recently got a new camera and have been playing with the ‘panorama’ feature. I was taking a picture of the field behind us, and then took these of Charissa 😀
Here she is saying, “Are we done yet?” 😀
I took some of her climbing our apple tree…
…and hanging upside down out of it!
She ran up to the peach tree and started swinging on one of the branches. I said, “Don’t climb that tree! It’s too little!” Then I said, “Hey wait! Stay there for a minute, you aren’t supposed to do that, but stay there ’til I get your picture!” 😀
She tried covering the lense, but as you can see, I still got her picture 🙂
I love this one!
Do you have a little sister who wants to match my sister?! 😀 You can buy a dress very much like this at our Etsy shop, Farmgirl Treasures.
