bit in blue

8668 Simplicity size 4 coat and dress pattern

The new dress fits well! I made the top view in two blue fabric remnants just as a prototype. I had cut it out during Esme's bath last night and then while she played outside this afternoon I finished it. I took the sewing machine 'al fresco' on the porch using an extension cord and an end table. During her bath tonight I finished the zipper and then put it on her after the bath. It looks kind of like a nightgown, but with maybe a few little alterations it would be a pretty pattern to make lightweight summer dresses...
