Hi Linda!! You had asked about the other two dresses I was making for Easter. Well, thanks to my having to paint instead of sew , they weren't done in time for Easter, but since the girls ended up not being home Sunday, it didn't really matter (although I'm still upset about it ). Anyway, here are the dresses I came up with (finished at 2 a.m. today ):
I had no entredeux to use on these, so I had to improvise. I'm not happy with the sleeve treatment, but didn't want to try to put lace on gathered fabric without entredeux. (Note to self: Purchase a LOT of entredeux soon!!)
The dresses are the same except for the accent colors--one likes blue, the other likes pink.
I have the fabric to make slips for these, one blue, one pink, but have run into a problem: the Martha Pullen Fancy Slip runs extremely large!! I made a 3T for my DGD to go under her 3T Heirloom Party Dress and she was swimming in it! I don't know why I expected two patterns made by the Martha Pullen Company to actually be the same sizes . Silly me. Anyway, I now have to come up with proper fitting slip patterns. The girls will be home tomorrow ... that is today ... no pressure here .
So--what are you working on??
