Sophie's dress

I used McCall's 3531 for this one but changed the sleeves to be like the other girls dresses and I added the tie.
I love the length but she needs to learn to walk on her feet (she's been walking on her knees the past 2 or 3 months) because she gets stuck in it as it is now.
Here's a close-up of my attempt at changing the sleeves. I think I did the first one three times and it turned out all right although the gathers on top aren't all that even...
I'm so happy to have these done! I need to make a flower for Tessa's yet and Lukas really wants a tie so I'll see if I have enough fabric for that...

The wedding is next week Friday (yea!!) so I'll post a picture from the day when we get back.

  8. Very pretty, Suzanne!
    There's a girl in the Owen Sound church that you would get along with really well. She goes under Pennywhistle Designs on Facebook. Have a look at her stuff, it's inspiring! You would have lots in common. Her sewing projects sell like hotcakes. Might be a cottage business in it for you!
