Truth be told I am embarrassed by how long it took me to finish these. Not due to the pattern makers fault but my own bite-of-more-than-I-can-chewitis. I had these cuties cut up and ready to sew since November eek! They were supposed to be Christmas dresses but Little B was going through a "I don't like any colour but pink" moment and this is honestly the most festive looking fabric she would agree to.
I was also feeling a little guilty about the fact that I have made my girls matching dresses, something I never thought I would do HOWEVER word on the street is this is totally ok (plus Little B just loves matching her sister).
I liked that I was forced to revisit the invisible zipper here, I'm not great at them but it did occur to me I am never going to be any good at them unless I keep practicing. In the end I am actually pretty happy with my efforts here.
As Ally isn't walking
I really liked the Hanami dress by StraightGrain patterns, and B likes wearing it (Ally was just as happy to get around naked) so I think this one is a winner yay!
I'm feeling a little sad right now as this could well be the last sewing project for some time while my little sewing space is a demolition zone SIGH but I have a great plan! I am going to teach myself how to crochet! I may even make a nice blanket for the couch or some cute winter hats or some new undies (kidding). Anyhow lesson number one is right HERE if you are interested (yay again for Pip Lincolne!)
P.S If you have any pattern recommendations I would LOVE to hear about them!
