so sweet to sew for



Last week I made another dress and little coat for my small and sweet friend, Tess. I used more of that fabric I fell in love with as a border around the bottom of the dress and I lined the little coat with it also.

This dress and coat were hard. And I'm convinced that my sewing machine has it out for me at this point. So, I think my sewing machine and I will take a little break...give each other some breathing room. Or perhaps I'll just use it for paper projects for a while.





Thanks Kirsten and Tess for playing along with my sewing antics!

Oh my goodness, so adorable! You got some cute shots, Robyn. And the dress will be wonderful. I'm glad she can wear it for a while.

She is the cutest little girl and so lucky to have you making clothes for her. I made my elder daughter clothes when she was little but haven't made anything for a while now. I love the little coat - in the sneak peak I thought the outfit might have been for you ;)

Whoa! Tess looks so different! Such a big girl with that long hair and lengthening face!

Know that your sewing efforts on this hard project are so appreciated by this reader! (And Tess looks happy and comfy in her new digs, too.)

I'm with Marti: more of her in that gorgeous coat, please! (pushy, pushy!) That coat especially looked really complex; I'm so impressed by it!

What a beautiful little girl -- I totally am hearting the dress too!! Love it. Makes me want to make Abby some clothes, but if it is HARD for you, I wouldn't even survive it:):)

Beautiful work as always,
Steph
