I really like the way it turned out. I may still embellish it a bit. I thought some off white lace trim on the bottom of the apron would be pretty. I also need to finish her off white pettiskirt that will go underneath of it. But the dress and apron are complete. Woohoo!
I used this simplicity pattern. But I purchased it from this seller on etsy for $4! She was amazingly quick at getting it to me and it was a wonderful transaction overall. In the end I remembered why I don't care to sew from Simplicity patterns. I made some changes to the pattern because I
was too lazy to make didn't have any bias tape to match. I'm more of a make it up as you go kind of sewer. But it did help me kind of think about the structure of and how to tackle Hailey's dress.
I am feeling a little bit better about the deadline of Halloween. I have 28 days left! I have started setting some goals and a time line as to what needs to be done by when. I want to have the pettiskirts done by this Wednesday. We'll see how that goes! Then I will start on Hailey's costume all the while searching for things for my costume. I think we finally decided with the March Hare because he goes well with the Mad Hatter (for the hubby).
How is your Halloween coming?
Love and Hugs,
