But nothing gets the creative fires lit like having the girls over for a sewing party! The girls in this case were the lovely Stacey, aka Hazelmoonfly and her daughter Bailey, aka the precious miss Boo.
Stacey and I have braved a few craft fairs together and we love to get together to
We did actually get some sewing done while the girls enjoyed some parallel play. And I tried to get a few pictures as part of Getting In Front of the Camera, but the girls weren't that cooperative.
Bailey rocking her birthday dress, made with Kitschy Coo's fun-to-sew Mini Mod Dress Pattern in the most fantastic mod fabric I've ever found at the cheapy fabric store.
Rylee in just plain shorts and a t-shirt 'cause the cobbler's daughter got no shoes.
Whistle while you serge, la la la la la la laaaaa
A sadly blurry picture of Stacey learning that her life will have no meaning until she gets a serger of her own.
Between the small amount of sewing we got done and the momentum that pushed me into nap time, I got the dress almost all the way done. Rylee woke up before I could hem it, but I'm kind of glad. She grew since I measured her (!!) and it's a little snug, so I think I'm going to rip out the (invisible) zipper and use a smaller seam allowance.
But here it is with the hem pinned up.
