Grace's Baby Doll top! Shirring Success!!
Well after a day of running around visiting friends, we finally made it back home early afternoon so I could do some sewing! Put Milly down for her nap, set DH out mowing the lawns and popped Grace in front of Finding Nemo to settle down and do some sewing! I was itching to finish this top! So 9 rows of shirring later..... here it is! Got a bit creative with my ribbon, sewed it on with a wandering wavey line stitch and then just 2 rows of straight stitch, just for something different. I actually sewed the straps in as is, no ties on the shoulders for Grace unlike Milly's. She doesn't really like frilly stuff like that, always complains it gets in her way, and I figure with the shirring, it will give enough for her to get her arms in it.
Thats the last thing I am going to make with this material. Two tops and two skirts, I'm starting to get sick of it! Put it down the bottom of the fabric stash.
My softie challenge has been put on hold today while I finished this. I have two pairs of pants cut out ready to sew tomorrow. Feeling a sewing frenzy coming on this week! LOL
