Jane’s Birdie Peasant Dress
I broke out the sewing machine the other day. Do you know how momentous that is? Monumentally momentous. It means there was a perfect storm at our house involving: 1) Jane taking great naps, 2) me getting the cleaning done for that day, and 3) me having all the necessary supplies already on hand for the project. I had been in the mood to sew something for Jane Darling, so I checked my sewing board on Pinterest, and sure enough there was something quick and easy waiting for me.
I spent one nap time gathering supplies and cutting out the pieces, and another sewing the dress together. I call this a success – I love the little birdie pattern, and the ric rac trim! I even learned a few new tricks while I was speeding through this dress. I can now use the overlock function on my fancy sewing machine, which comes in handy since I don’t have a serger to finish my edges. I learned the proper way to apply ric rac trim, and I learned how to make the ric rac flower I attached to the front. It’s a little big now, but that just means she’ll be able to wear it for a while.
Jane and I will have to make a deal – I’ll work on the sewing if she works on the modeling…
