Black Friday sounds rather frightening so I am having White Friday, with white fog in the morning. Since my last post, I have been making a dress a day for a 6 year old. I was trying to follow the sewing plan I sketched and showed in a previous post, but after making the dress I thought it was so fast and easy, I should keep going. One dress looked good, and two seemed even better, so why not ten? Therefore, being stuck on the dress, I am not anywhere close to getting all the other things made. The pants, vest, slippers, hat, bag, doll, blouse and skirt are all cut out waiting to be sewn. The dresses you see in the picture are all made from flannel from the Walmart sewing dept. There are a couple more dresses not pictured. One, I could not get off of her because she loves the soft flannel. I am thinking of making some adult size dresses in flannel, also. Each dress is supposed to have a matching pair of pants to wear with it. Though the dresses look plain and shapeless in the photos, they look better on the little girl, and some of them have elastic bands in the back to pull the dress up more snugly.
I have nearly used up this jar of buttons I got at Walmart. Since there were no buttons alike in the whole collection, I had to use them quite playfully, with different sizes and slightly different colors. I thought you might like to know about this before you buy these. They come in whites and blues and reds and other colors but none of them are alike. These are the buttons on the dresses.
I do hope to write a meaningful post soon!
