These were the other dresses I made with just a few different styles. A touch of rick rack here, a bit of filly trim there! Just something to get some mileage out of that small remnant.

Then I had one with just a tad bit more for a sleeve, and viola! Easy to make, great for Mom’s wanting to make something hand made for her girls.

I tailor tacked these tucks (say that three times fast!!) but if you have another more current way to make your markings do share. I like the tacks though it is more time consuming that way. Way back when we used the wheel to trace them onto the fabric. I am sounding prehistoric here. Boy were those the days.  Wink not!

I loved the sleeves I added on this and thought it made the dress much more wearable. But either way, it is a great beginners dress to make. Use your trims up if you have some laying around in your sewing drawers. You barely need more than a yard and the quality of trims are not what they used to be. So go for it.

Here are a few other shots of this dress. Enjoy.

And Lastly, this here shows you the size of the pieces of fabric that I have to contend with to get these designs out. I was thrilled to be able to piece together those little purses, but most I couldn’t get sleeves out of so I was grateful to this pattern for letting me sneak in the designs and add some touches that I haven’t used in ages.

Since the weather has gone bad, it’s such a great opportunity to create some beautiful clothes for spring.

Here’s to staying in and creating.

Cheers!
