In my post on Thursday I showed you the fabric and buttons I had for a sewing project I hoped to do on the weekend.
I have spent the day sewing and have almost finished the dress, along with some other things.
Here is the dress – I just need to finish stitching the yoke facings and turn the hem.
When I was with Belle yesterday she commented that Miss O and Izz needed more shorts for summer and asked if I would be able to make some. So, today I sorted through my fabric and found enough to make 4 pairs of shorts. They are not finished – still need waist casing and elastic as well as hemming the bottom of the legs but here they are so you can see what I have been doing.
I have also set aside two more pieces. This one is left from the pinafore I made for Miss O and will be enough to make a pinafore for my niece.
Finally, Belle bought this Fred Bare dress for Miss O from the op shop for $8 yesterday. It needs a little repair to the hem where the fabric has pulled away from the stitching but otherwise it is just perfect. Thanks, Duchess for the tip about the shop.
