Finished the girls fairy dresses, basic peasant dress base. I used a circle skirt on the orange, but kept it square, and I'm loving how that flows. On the red, I cut the dress wider at the base, and I did an overlay and cut it with a bit of a scallop. Not loving how the hem came together, but it's certainly good enough for a Halloween costume! Both have tied extra fabric onto themselves for belts/headbands. I got one Christmas dress cut-out and realized that I need more fabric for the second one. Spent some time staring at my star fabric trying to decide if it will be good as a circle skirt; it's cute, but I need to figure out how to make the waist band covered as she doesn't love the elastic touching her. Not bad for a day, not sure if I'm going to get much more done this week.
I'm a SAHM with two beautiful little girls, an awesome husband, two cats, and a house we're slowing making into our dream home.
I love to play with photos and save our memories, and I am fascinated with cutting pieces of fabric and creating something useful and beautiful. Handmade makes me happy.
