Analise Girl's Dress
Shout out to Madeline from Massionnette!!! Massionnette is a great fabric store in down town Oceanside. I went in one day to see some fabrics they have on clearance and saw this ice cream cone fabric that I just had to buy in hopes of making Genny a dress. I asked the sales girl if there was anyone around who did private sewing lessons, and as it turns out one of the employees does. I booked today's lesson before we went to SC, and I've been drooling just waiting for the day to come. Today was the day, so I said goodbye to my little ones and my husband and went to spend two hours with Madeline. I just about completed the dress in the time slot, I just need to hem the bottom. But I couldn't resist letting Genny try it on, to see how the size worked out (can you believe I made a 5T and it fits her just a little loose? Boy my almost-three-year-old is big!).
This is the first article of clothing I've ever made (unless you count the hats I made last year, which I don't). Thomas asked if I could make it again, and I think that I can. I just need to do it soon so it sticks in my head. Does that mean I have another trip to the fabric store in the future? I'd have to say yes...
The pattern is Analise by Portabello Pixie.
