I made Scout a dress (and still have a yard to spare) using the same pattern as her patriotic frock.
|The bodice is lined with a no-frills off-white cotton.|
Again, I loved the pattern. And the fabric. I put the entire thing together in an evening, which is very fast for me. I really love those pleats.
|Some day we will get rid of that baby paci. But not today.|
Once it was complete I stalled out on the buttonholes. After practicing a few with success, I got ready for the real deal. Of course, I absolutely massacred one of them and it's a huge mess. But it's not visible when the dress is worn, so I decided to worry about it later.
|Seriously. That top buttonhole looks is a huge mess and took nearly as long as the rest of the dress.|
I had every intention of sewing a basic diaper cover to go with the dress since it's pretty short. But I never got around to it. Maybe I still with. I'm thinking brown with white polka dots.
Now what to do with the remaining fabric?
