So, I have a finish this week. Just one since I've been eating, breathing and sleeping Santa Shop for school next week. But one is better than I thought I'd have.
I finished up Em's new dress that I made to test Jenny's latest pattern. This one is the Com-PLEAT-ly Perfect Peasant Dress and it's a quick and easy sew.
light purple. Seriously...
This dress calls for pleated sections to be added to the sleeves and hemline. I didn't have a lot of solids to match this plaid, so we went with pink on the sleeves and just continued the plaid along the hemline. Oh, and I'm just going to add--my plaids all matched up along the seamlines--booyah!
I definitely recommend this dress if you're looking for a simple dress for your daughter Size 10 and under. Jenny's patterns are easy to follow and use common sense to construct unlike many of the commercial patterns.
I'm linking up with Amanda Jean since I've actually accomplished something. ;)
p.s. I am in no way monetarily compensated when I test sew patterns. I do receive the pattern for free to test it for errors, ease in sewing, instructions, etc, but all of my opinions are completely my own.
p.p.s PLEASE someone tell me what I can do to make my pictures not appear blurry when inserted into blogger. These are saved at a normal web size and sometimes appear fine and other times, blogger pixelates them weird. Any advice??
