Wearing her first new winter dress, playing with Poof kitten I went through the fabric boxes yesterday and washed and stacked the things I will need to make her a few more after this same pattern. I have a green one with white sleeves cut out and ready to go. She will need at least two more dresses this size and a few more pairs of pants. // Butterick pattern #3200, size 6, only alteration made was shortening the skirt //
The other day she was playing with Poof and her Mr.Frog toy and Daddy caught this shot of her with her tongue out. This was just after I posted the magic show pics and had went to work.
We went to town today to get some plastic to insulate the windows, and a few other things. I had her wear the dress and it fit well under her blue knit coat. She has been watching Martha Speaks on PBSkids.org for days and now 'Martha' the invisible dog is always present and she feeds her steaks and leading her on a leash.
1960s, size 6
bought February 2011, and now in good use // Made the second dress today while Esme was at her Grandma's house. It is green with snowflake white sleeves, slightly different cut to the neck and treatment to the skirt gathering, but same everything else. It is nice to make some progress during days off. They take about a half hour or so to cut out, and about two hours to sew - and that can be hard to scrape that amount of time some days. Esme is watching Daddy play Skyrim now and telling him he needs to go to protect the village, she loves her village, it is safe now from the dragon.
