Here we are, Day 7 of my April Sewing Challenge. If you’re just joining me, I have set a goal of listing one new item in my Etsy Shop for each weekday in April. If my math is correct, I’m a third of the way there, but I tell ya, I’m getting worn out–this is tough!!
Today’s creation is a Military Inspired Shift Dress. I used the same pattern that I did for the Tartan Dress that I posted yesterday, the Norah by Mouse House Creations. This time I added short sleeves for a different look.
I may have found a new favourite pattern, here! I luurrve me a vintage silhouette–there’s nothing cuter to me than a little girl in a short, peter pan collared shift dress with tights! I have a few similar patterns in my arsenal, many of them are actual vintage paper patterns. I really like this one specifically because it has several sleeve options: short, long, and sleeveless, as well as three collar options. Vintage patterns also usually come in only one size, and this beauty includes sizes 12 months to 12 years! I suspect I’ll be making these for Miss P for years to come!
These are gold, nautical buttons that I’ve been hoarding for a while–nice to see them put to use finally!
It was SOOO nice to take pictures outside today! I feel like Spring might actually be here to stay–finally!
Thanks for stopping by! Until tomorrow…
