We’re not doing much today. Just sewing and getting ready to go to Oregon on Tuesday to see my sister and her family. YAY!! I am super excited. Tonight we are grilling corn and sitting on the roof with some soy ice cream & root-beer floats, strawberries and watching the fireworks.
I made this dress almost immediately after my discovery of elastic shirring. Boy is it ever FUN! This dress is super easy and it’s called “the most flattering shirt dress”, which I have to agree, does a great job at hiding those tummy troubles. I shaped mine differently so that it would have longer sleeves. You can find the instructions here. The fabric was bought at a yard sale over 5 years ago and I thought it would make good practice fabric. I’d love to make another dress like this, but with a different fabric. Any suggestions?
I already have the Mendocino sundress made, I just need to add straps. I hope I can get to that before we leave. Tomorrow I’ll be sharing some cute pillowcase pajama shorts I made for the boys.
