ore and more, I hope to be saying this. Not only does that mean, I want to sew more for myself, but I hope to sew things that are flattering, classic (and some trendy too) and, most importantly, unrecognizable as being home sewn.
My Easter projects are a good start. I bought Kay Whitt's book Sew Serendipity because I loved the long dress with the ruffle and thin tie and knew I wanted it to be my Easter Dress. It would also be my first dress for myself and also my first invisible zipper.`
I also made my youngest daughter a coordinating dress using this pattern (with alterations) from Lily Bird Studio. Check Lily Bird out for some cute patterns with good variety. There are some patterns I haven't seen before, like a blouse for little girls and some cute cuffed shorts.
My 3-year-old's Matilda Jane dress was the inspiration for the fabrics and colors of the other two. I am very proud of the two I made and HAD to get a photo session in while we were in a great location (at the beach on vacation). Fortunately, my hubby was kind enough to oblige and he really got some stunners.
