NOT Checking Things Off the List

Remember my list of things I needed to sew? Well, this little beauty wasn't on it. I actually went to cut out some pajama bottoms (on the list) for Tina's oldest, Katherine, but this material was just screaming to be a cute little girl's dress. So, I made a dress for her third, Elena - she is just one day younger than Rachel. It turned out even better than I had imagined. Tina sent me the material in the fall of 2006 since she didn't know what to do with it, so now she gets it back in a usable form. Isn't that great!
Tina, I expect a picture to be posted of Elena in the dress, post haste. OK, well, it can wait until you actually receive it in the mail.

I'm excited that for the next two weeks we have a break from school, so I will get more sewing done than usual.

JO, that is GREAT~!! Elena is super-into dresses lately and she will be thrilled with that when she sees it!
So great to see that material finally being used and on something so cute!

That dress is beautiful! You are right - that fabric was begging to be a beautiful dress!

It's so cute! I can't wait to see it being modeled. I like the bow that you added.
