how i spent tuesday morning/afternoon...






i got this fabric in colorado, for (i think) $1.29 as a remnant. the pink lining is from the grandma mae stash....
first time i made a dress with lining (i made the same pattern twice and did the rest off the top of my head. i think, even with the tiny bit of extra work i will do this from now on...it really feels more substantial and put together better.
this is the first in a series of two that i had cut out a couple of weeks ago for sewing later. i liked that too, that i had the pieces cut out and waiting for me to get the whim to sew again (and the time and quietude)...
they are for her birthday presents in november. once again..."try them on now put them away fashions" haha...

brown corduroy with paisley and flowers and gorgeousness....



pink liner... (soooooo close to being reversable...i MUST learn how to do that (i think it could be done by some sort of "strip down the sides, around the bottom hem, and on the shoulders? yes! that is how i will do it!)


and the (somewhat reluctant today...) little model....(bastian is off to the side bribing her to stand up with a cookie...can you tell?! haha)




(fred is now wearing the tights........)
