Simple Sundress

my sister is so sweet. every baby shower she has gone to in the past couple of years, she comes to me for a gift. and the best part is that she either pays or babysits. so i score. i can't decide which i would rather receive :)

so she needed a baby shower gift and i was a little tired of my patterns - seeing as how i like to make like 10 in a row of each pattern i get, i believe it is understandable. i am a point where i think i can venture out and make my own pattern....its still a little swimming without floaties...

so i was happy to try out Lotta Jansdotter's Simple Sundress pattern. it called for single fold bias tape, which i had never used, but was super easy. very UNLIKE its evil cousin double fold bias tape, which i have yet to master. the only negative thing about her patterns is that there are not a lot of corresponding pictures to the "steps", which i find nice since i am such a visual learner. i had to carefully read each step approximately 46 times before i felt i knew what to do next.

is it weird that i am still surprised when i am finished and it all comes together? i love that about sewing/creating. you like my mannequin? bryson wants to name her Kajsa...creepy...

So glad you finally got a mannequin and don't have to put girl stuff on your boys anymore.

I think she needs an afro wig.
