Sewing Fun This Weekend

I finished Simplicity 4581, a discountinued pattern.  It turned out great, I did a FBA and the pattern directions were pretty stratightword and easy. 
Today I went to bruch with some family and friends after church for a pre-birthday celebration!  It was scrumptous!  Afterwards, my youngest GD and I did some sewing.  I originally started the dress she is wearing for my oldest GD, but didn't get it finished.  I noticed it the other day and thought this GD could fit it.  While I finished the dress, she pulled out the remaining fabric and declared she wanted to make a dress for her doll.  What fun we had, I freehand cut the pattern for a top and skirt.  She sewed the skirt seams and added to the rickrac trim.  She was so proud of herself.   Here are the results!

Fantasic! Love the dresses, especally the little one. You must be so proud of your GD. ...now watch out, you may have to stand in line for machine time if your GD catches the sewing bug.

Sweet! Love the piping and the tie on the collar -- not to mention that that third picture, especially, is priceless. You may have a new sew-er in the family soon; she looks pleased as punch!

Your dress is beautiful, and so is your granddaughter. So glad she wanted to make a matching dress for her baby doll! It's fun when you can help them learn a useful skill.
