Busy weekend. I spent most of it working on the flower girl dress and I am happy to report it is done(!) except for the hem. Even the little jacket for just in case it’s chilly on October 5 in Texas is done.

Can you see the sparklies in the fabric? This is such a princess dress. The entire inside is lined, so no itching! and it has these wide ties on the back that are about a foot longer than the hem, so when you tie the bow, the tails will still nearly touch the ground.

The pattern for the jacket was this little shrug patten made for furs. But it’s so cute in the same pink glittery satin. Yummmm.

You know, I really really love sewing little girl dresses. I would love to do it professionally, but no idea how to get started with that. And besides, the choice words that come from my sewing room when I’m working on them, are not fit for the deck of a pirate ship, much less my 5 year old’s ears. But the satisfaction of a pretty dress and a job well done mean so much to me.
