It’s been a while friends, it’s been a while. But I did it. After many weeks of thinking about it I got back on the horse. It’s a modified version of a dress that I bought for Chase over Memorial Day Weekend.
The top is about half a t-shirt and the skirt is from some rayon yardage that I picked up a Gus’s Woolens. I modified this tutorial for the skirt. I’m loving the circle skirt. I used bias tape to make facing for the hem. I love that technique. I started the skirt last night and finished the hem this morning. Easy easy.
I want to do it again! With a lightweight cotton this time (maybe some Liberty lawn?!). Maybe I’ll make one for Avery. She loves a good spinning dress too. And this it THE spinning dress. After wearing it for a little while Chase decided to make it fancier by adding buttons. She picked out the two biggest buttons in the jar and I sewed them on for her. I resisted for a second but after all, what’s a button stash for if it isn’t making dresses fancier??
I might even make one of these for myself.
