Flower Girl Dress with Pink Hairbow
My sister is getting married on Saturday and I have been a busy little bee sewing away on the flower girl's dress and the ring bearer's vest. My sewing space is a complete disaster. Fabric scraps and thread trimmings everywhere.
This week has been such a whirlwind of running errands, cleaning house, haircuts, coordinating with relatives, and making sure we have everything ready for the wedding. My husband, my kiddos and I are all in the wedding. I have to make sure I haven't forgotten anything.
I just love little girl's dresses that have the large bow in the back. I love this little pink dress. It is so soft and pretty and poofy with all five layers in the skirt.
This little dress took quite a bit of sewing. The pattern did not come in the size I needed so I had to adjust the pattern to a smaller size to fit her. That lengthened the process quite a bit.
Here is the ring bearer's vest. This was so much faster to make than the dress. I made the dress first and then the vest. I flew through the vest making process after accomplishing the dress. My only hang up was the buttonholes.
Apparently the buttonhole sensor on my sewing machine is very sensitive and if it is triggered early the machine will think it is time to turn around and come back to complete the buttonhole. Problem is it kept turning around early. My seam ripper was put to good use through this part of the process and I contemplated getting out the wine.
Here are the patterns that I used. I will update the pattern number for the vest once I find the number. I didn't realize that it was torn. Both patterns were really easy to use and I only had to make a few adjustments to give them the right fit.
I have to say I cannot believe my sister, who is 10 years younger, is getting married on Saturday. I can remember when she was a little baby and now she is a grown young woman. How the time flies...
I have been so busy this week in order to get everything finished by today. Family came in town today and I am just going to enjoy visiting with everyone and enjoy all the wedding festivities.
I have two quilt projects on my list to start, but not until Sunday.
