It is too hot to play outside in the afternoons, so we’ve been stuck inside. My way of dealing with being stuck inside with two very active children is to obsessively sew (if you have been around for awhile you probably already picked up on that).
Today I made Audrey a Mickey & Minnie dress. She picked out the fabric when we went to the store last weekend. I picked out the black with white polka-dots to go with it. I used a Simplicity Learn to Sew pattern. I made the dress a size bigger than her measurements so it will last for more than a season. I didn’t love the pattern. I was very confused about the way they said to add bias tape, so I ended up ignoring it and adding the tape like I did when I made the Fen dress. I think it worked out OK.
When I was making my list for the fabric store I forgot to write down bias tape. I would normally make my own, but I didn’t buy enough fabric. I went back to JoAnn today to pick some up and ended up letting the kids pick out fabric again, so I guess I’ll be making shorts again soon. I need to stop taking them to the fabric store with me.
