I’ll spare you the details, but this past week I have been banging my head on a brick wall with the construction of a little chenille jacket I am making for a wedding. Anyway, I needed to do something light and easy and this was it.
This little dress whipped up so fast it was just what I needed to set my creativity back on track. It is a definite stash diving compulsive piece of needlework. I am not totally happy with the final design but it was great fun to put together and thats what mattered at the time. I will definitely do this pattern again, Butterick 4718. It was so easy and fast. I used my serger for most of it. I have issues with the directions but will know how to do it “my way” next time and it will be even quicker and easier. I serged and turned the hem and then did a twin needle topstitch. Cover stitch machine? I don’t think so!
So now my little Sophie has something cute to wear to the bridal shower next month.
