Sewing my daughter's dress has become quite the tradition.
Remember???? Let me give you a walk down memory lane.....

Awwww....I get misty eyed when I see those. I still have all of her dresses too! Will keep them forever. I'm amazed at how much she's grown! She's really getting big! My baby's growing up....sniff, sniff!
Ok, so the big day is Friday and I'm not really worried. Her dress is already cut out and sitting by the sewing machine. I'll tackle that later today. In addition to that I've decided to make my Hubby a matching tie. I've never made him one before so this should be fun. Originally I wanted to tailor him a suit but would have needed to start a couple of months back and I just had WAY too much going on to do that. There's always next year. Anyhow here's the pattern I'm using for my daughter's dress......
(My daughter's dress---final pic! I LOVE it! It's a base pattern that I plan on doing some cute things to!)
I originally wanted to use this pattern and thought the same for last year but there's ALOT going on with this dress and I decided I didn't want all the layers and fullness. I'm certain I'll find a reason to use this pattern in the future!

Ok, I've got to go sew which means I've got to stop typing for now. I'll keep you abreast of my progress. I'll be sewing until Friday since I have both these pieces and Fearless February items to complete. My draping class is going fairly well and I'll have updates about that soon too! Hope your week is off to a great start!!!
