Thanks guys. It's great to get some praise for my favorite hobby.
Marcy, what an adorable child! The dress is darling and she looks very pleased with it! Congratulations Gramma!!! Mary
Thanks. She was very pleased with jumping on the chair. Thought I would never get her still enough to take the picture.
Good to see her smiling! She must be feeling better.
Oh yes. She is wide open. She is definitely over the stomach bug.Marcy
Very cute! And the dress is cute too!
I think you have started a thread on Patrones magazines? There is also another magazine (one that has the patterns included in it) for children called Ottobre. They have some cute kids clothes in there, too!
I'm like some of these others. I am not used to paying much for patterns. I thought Patrones was just a magazine and didn't realize it had patterns already in it. I would love to get one, maybe the cheapest, but can't spend a bundle.Marcy
What a pretty dress for a little princess. Very cute.
Your "strawberry dress" is precious. Love the sweet, classic pattern you used.
I like the little ruffle for the sleeve and it is very open and roomy around the arms. I used a 3mm hem foot on the ruffle and it worked so great that I used it on the hem of the dress. These different feet are amazing. They save so much time and are so easy.Marcy

It's been a long time since I've used my hemming foot. I have used it in the past, and know it does work well. Thanks for reminding me...I'll have to practice a little to refresh my skills using that foot.
