I used Dana’s tutorial to make a plaid shirt dress for Lady. I am wildly crushing on plaid for the fall. Since I wanted her to wear it through the winter, I opted for the Madame Librarian sleeves instead of the ones pictured in the tutorial. I did need some help for the sleeves , but all in all this project was a huge sewing confidence builder. I am gaining more confidence in my ability to think through a project That is a very good feeling. The tutorial was great, and this may be one of my favorite finished projects to date.
Most importantly, Lady loves the dress and was very anxious for her photo shoot. Last week on a beautiful sunny October day, we had a girl’s day out. We went to get Lady a hair cut, solve a knitting problem, visit Daddy, and model her dress. She kept moving her face, feet and hands in different poses as I was taking pictures. We may have a budding model on our hands if her singing career doesn’t take off =)
And, inadvertently Lady and I now have the same haircut. I needed a change so I cut off many inches, and we had to even up the ends of her “crazy hair” as she was calling it.
