A Day Off

Today I made the decision to take the day off from WeePantz. I have been sewing my little heart out lately making nappies and bibs for the various markets I do around. So with an unexpected free weekend I decided to make a dress for Miss Ruth, simply because I haven't done it in a while.

As soon as I mentioned that today I was going to make a dress, Miss Ruth's ears pricked. I asked her what colour she would like it to be "pink" came the reply. So out I came with 3 different shades of pink fabric, and she picked the one she liked best. Light pink, ahh this girl has taste, it is the perfect colour for her skin tone.

So with pattern in hand, and some cute pink fabric along with some white to add my own little flair to it, off I set to make a cute dress. Around 2 hours later I emerged, dress in hand, to have it snatched to be worn immediately. I'm guessing that is the tick of approval!!

As usual, I don't know how to do as I am told. I left the front pockets off the dress and added white to the top and bottom to match the store bought bias binding I already had in the sewing room. I also made a yo yo for the front and finished it off with a little button, just the right colour. (p.s, I'm not too flash at yo yo's, so don't look too closely!)

So it got the seal of approval, she skateboarded up and down the street in it for hours today.
