I am taking a sewing class this summer and one of my assignments was to make two projects of my choice to share with the class through our online discussion board. I decided to make a little girl’s dress and matching headband for a friend’s daughter. I am so excited about how it turned out! I was actually able to follow the pattern like I have been learning and the pattern didn’t seem like a foreign language like they have when I have tried to create something in the past.
For the dress, I followed McCalls M6944 pattern and used B. I bought the fabric at Hobby Lobby. I love paisley print!
After many hours of sewing, here is the final result!
The pattern had little bows on the front and the back, but I decided to make little roses out of matching fabric instead because I love them!!
For the headband, I found an online tutorial. I also made a matching rose for the headband. I cannot wait for Little Miss A to try on her dress and headband!
I forgot how much fun sewing is especially now that I actually know what I am doing (a little bit!) :)
