I know, you’re expecting a new bag, right?
You would be wrong, sir. Lately I’ve been sewing a lot… I know you wouldn’t know that because there’s been nothing on my blog or new etsy shop listings. But really I have been sewing a lot. Mostly clothes. I am having so much fun sewing dresses for my little girls and their cousin!
This is Jane – I made a pattern last night and was able to sew this up today.
This one is made with Joel Dewberry’s Modern Meadow line. I absolutely love his fabric designs.
A little navy ruffle at the bottom to match the collar.
She hooks with a button in the back (and a second button on the other side, just so she’s not lopsided!)
I’m just loving the basic look of the dress with the graphic fabric. I got all excited to make this last night after reading my sister’s blog. She went to Europe and just got back. Her flight was a little delayed in Atlanta, so she got the chance to see the Jimmy Carter Presidential Library. What does that have to do with this dress? Well, if you live in my brain you logically make the leap from Jimmy Carter to JFK (sister’s favorite president) to his wife. And this style reminds me of her classic style. She had such grace, didn’t she?
