Well at last I managed to get Grace in her new dress I finished earlier this week. Had one of those busy weeks towards the end and finding a moment to get her to pose for a picture while clean was a bit impossible! But what better place to wear a new frock than to the airport!
Daz flew out to Sydney this morning for a meeting with the ABC in regards to Gracie Lou. Exciting stuff! But I'll reserve my excitment to a quite bubbling joy till we have something to get really excitied about! What a long 24 hours this will be.
Anyway, back to the dress! This is actually the third time I have made this pattern, its so simple, and the bodice is lined and there is no zip, just one button, so an easy dress to make. The fabric is from one of my co op purchases. I loved using the rick rack, special thanks to my sewing EB buddy Andrea who suggested tucking the rick rack under and sewing it into place to stop it fraying. It worked! Well I haven't washed it yet but can't see any edges sticking out.
