WIP Wednesday

This will be quick today because I'm now busy ripping out my mistake before I finish up today's project and head to town to run errands and prepare for Santa Shop next week...  Oh the joys of PTO co-chair behind-the-scenes goodness.

Today I'm making a new dress for Emma.  My friend Jenny is at it again with a new pattern.  This time she's come up with a pleated peasant dress.  The sleeve and dress hemlines have pleats to add to the cuteness.

I let Em go through the stash over the weekend and she picked this purple plaid.  I never would have guessed...

So, I've got the pleated edges added to the sleeves and body section.  I've got the sleeves sewn to the front of the body.  I had the sleeves sewn to the back of the body only to realize I'd sewn the body inside out!  DOH!

So, I'm spending a little time with my seam ripper before I sew the back back on and sew up the side seams.  Then I've just got to finish the neckline and DONE!

I'll try to get some pictures this afternoon to show off tomorrow...

And since I'm actually in-progress with something, I'm linking up.  Head over to Lee's to see what everyone else is up to this week.


  1. Oh no! I'm sure the second time around will be that much quicker!

  2. Good luck! I've been besties with my seam ripper this week too!

  3. Oh seam ripping! Yuck! Hope it went quickly!


I'd love to hear from you, so let me know...whaddya think!
