My baby girl is growing up! This week I had an itch to do some garment sewing and Chloe really wanted a new dress... so we're calling this her Easter dress for this year. Heaven knows that this time next month something will come up and I'll be so glad it's already done. :)
And she really is growing up too fast for me! She and I browsed my Ottobre Design sewing magazines together looking for inspiration for her new handmade dress and nothing in the children's issues interested her. We found this lovely fitted dress in Women's issue 02/2015 (it's design #15) and the little pleated jacket in Women's issue 02/2014 (design #8). I love my subscription so much!
Luckily, Chloe fit the smallest size and the only alterations I had to do were remove some of the length in the bodice and the skirt. I shortened the jacket about an inch also. Perfect!
It was another chance for sewing an invisible zipper too! They are my favorite.
