"Mama can you make me....

....a dress?" Maya asked a few days ago. Of course I was delighted to make something for her. I think she is Mommy's biggest fan.
Here are some action shots. Oh we had Dr. Seuss week at her school and today was crazy hair day hence the funky hair.

So I dug out some old patterns I bought a while back when one of our Jo-Ann's closed and they were getting rid off all their inventory. Today was the day to try one of them.

I decided on Mc Call's M5615. It looked relatively easy. Soon I found out there were a lot of pieces to cut out for a simple dress. And about an hour into cutting pattern and fabric I found out that the pattern wasn't as easy as I thought it would be. Well at least for my relatively novice sewing skills. I decided to give it a try anyways as I had cut into one of my lovely knits.

Maya loves it, I think. She gets all shy when I have a surprise for her. But after trying it on she danced around the whole house.

I think all in all it came out ok.

  1. I am absolutely amazed at how well the dress came out, and how well it fit. It is REALLY very pretty! I'm so proud of you ... and I know Maya absolutely loves it. Keep doing what you're doing, baby!
