Slight progress...

It doesn't look like I've done much, but I added the poofs under the sleeves and I made the collar, which was a pain the butt because the under-collar is smaller. Perhaps so the seams don't show? Anyways, I decided the collar made it too over-the-top, so I left the neckline plain.

I did buy more fabric when I went to buy a zipper. This is a case of "overly inspired by the pattern illustration"-itis. Can you guess which view I'm going to make?

I am going to take a nap, and then hopefully make some sewing progress.


  1. I just love when people find fabric similar to the illustrations for patterns. I hope you wear this with tights like view 2. Also good like. I had anything with straight lines, it always feels like I'm wasting so much fabric. :/

  2. Are you making the dress or the jumper? The dress is cute with the trim. I like that fabric you chose, do you think you will try to match the plaid?
    Your dress is cute and I think you're right about the collar, it may have been overwhelming on your small frame, time for a picture with you in it!

  3. I am going to make the jumper on the right. I already have some cool black buttons for it!


Thanks for your thoughts and feedback!
