purple progress

Originally uploaded by

Making the buttonholes (I practiced first - see picture!) turned out to be not only easy but actually fun (once I'd figured out how to do it)! My machine does it practically by itself, and I'm happy to report that The Purple Dress is done. Sure, it turned out HUGE - Hannah can probably wear it for her first birthday - but it's cute and I'd rather sew too big than too small.
I'm working on the hat and panties now...

Picture of the dress will follow as soon as the weather clears up - I'm having lighting issues!

Congrats on the buttonholes! I've yet to tackle them. They scare me :)

That is gorgeous. I love that purple. You know when kids are involved you would rather have clothes to big than just right anyway. I am glad it worked for you.
