Sewn for Project Run & Play’s January Challenge:
Fabric: Wool blend from Ragtime Fabrics. Bought it to make myself a skirt, but decided it’d be a great bubble dress. I might actually still have enough to make myself a skirt… if I wanted to match my four-year-old…. which I might. The lining, also from Ragtime, was a total nightmare. Just fraying all over the place. Even though I cut the bodice and lining at the same time, the lining came out ridiculously off-kilter and way too small. So I used my handy-dandy new piping foot to make this green piping (first time ever making my own piping) to finish it up. Love the purple & green, especially on the back (which I considered calling the front).
Problems: Oh my word, figuring out the right side/wrong side/inside/outside business. I thought it through over and over and in the end… the lining is inside out (so those fraying edges… yeah, totally exposed. But I’ll finish them off).
Lottie’s Response: “Mommy, I LOVE IT!” Happy to put it and refused to take it off. Also I let her jump on the bed.
Overall, I just adore it. I make it large enough that she can wear it with a turtle neck underneath so it should work for winter and spring, if she’ll just stop growing. This is a 4T, and it fits pretty well. For now.
