Saturday found me at home all day with just my two youngest. Very rare during the summer! I did some cleaning, some laundry and some baking. But the best part was the couple of hours in my sewing room.
Deanna saved up for the better part of a year for an American Girl doll (funny b/c we're Canadian) and she finally got it earlier this month. It's her birthday soon so I wanted to make her doll a dress. It's the Tea Party Doll Dress from Little Things To Sew by Liesl Gibson. I made the dress an inch longer than the pattern and skipped the hem facing (it's a doll dress after all) but otherwise I followed the instructions. I think it turned out pretty well and it was sure great to be in my sewing room again.
