I pulled out the sewing machine and started getting Maddy ready for Kindergarten.
Molly peasant dress with an elastic empire waist from a Sis Boom pattern. I downloaded it from www.youcanmakethis.com
. It came out really cute. I will make more using the sleeve and skirt length variations. It took a couple of hours and is super easy. The matching headband is a free pattern from the same site.
A patternless skirt made form an "oliver + s" tutorial. It uses ribbon to finish the hem and has an elastic waistband It took less than an hour to make (even with a supervisor). The tutorial is at www.oliverands.com
A close up of the headband from www.youcanmakethis.com
. I used one of my machine's "fancy" stitches to embellish it. Maddy is such a ham - she's blowing kisses.
