November Sewing

November was frantic sewing month! I had 4 flower girl dresses plus sewing for holidays to complete. Everything was in the in-between phase during the month so there was no completed photos and no updates. The wedding was last Sunday so I was finally forced to complete the dresses. I work better with deadlines!

Here are some pics.

Red and white polka dotted tops with white polka dotted tulle skirts! The top fabric is a Japanese fabric. Very comfortable and easy to wear for the kids. Nobody complained of itchiness because I hand-stitched the lining layer to hide all the seams! And no color runs, not like the other red and white polka dotted fabric I bought the last time. Which was lucky for me because I did not do a pre-wash before sewing the white layers on.

 Layered tulle on sleeves.

I drafted out the patterns for these in 4 different sizes. 80cm, 86cm, 104, 116cm.
Free patterns and instructions will be coming up sometime early next year.

Using the scrap fabric left, I even made some matching corsages to be attached to hairbands, just for an extra touch.

Next week, I’ll show you what holiday sewing I did for our year end holidays!

      Thanks Lucinda! Yes it was quite a feat getting 4 done! I had more pictures but there were so many people in the background, this was the best shot because she wasn’t looking and the background was (almost) clean :) Had to photoshop away someone’s foot haha…
