I loved the print fabric so well as I decided to use the print for the dress but didn't have enough to finish the lining so I got a little creative and pieced the back.
So now I'm enjoying sewing prints so much that I decided to make my 11 year old granddaughter, Trinity a print dress for Sunday. This fabric is a polished cotton and has to be at least 10 years old. I had planned to make the older granddaughter, Bree, who is now 17 a dress many many years ago and never got around to it. I used a Simplicity pattern as shown in the next photo. I had to use a size 6 adult pattern as Trin is so tall for eleven, the children sizes are too short, shoulders too narrow and just doesn't look right. I guess this is what is ment by the word "tween". I had to add a little to the waist and shorten the bodice. Hopefully, I'll get a chance to get a picture of her wearing the dress.
Now comes the linen pieces:
The top is a very lightweight linen and cotton made from my pattern copied from an Eileen Fisher $158 tank I purchased on a drastic clearance sale last year at Dillards. The pants are made from a lightweight cross hatch dark and light gray linen.
I'm still excited and plan to continue this frenzy until burn-out!
