puppy dress!

one day, i will start making things that are more appropriate for a girl my age to wear, but that isn’t today! so here is my latest version of simplicity 4270!

the fabric is something i picked up a while back at a market a few towns over…. and the trim and buttons are things i had laying around! the buttons actually aren’t functional on this, as right now i only have a straight stitch machine, and none of my button hole attachments are working, AND there is no way in hell i am hand sewing THAT many buttonholes with my crazy mystery diagnosis arm problems!

this is probably the 5th or 6th time i have used this pattern… and really it won’t be my last. at all.
so, as always more on my blog!

xoxo,
christine

  • Up until I just followed the link to your blog, you have been The Poodle Dress Girl in my head. Now you’re The Map Shades Girl.

    I MUST HAVE YOUR MAP SHADES. THERE IS NO AMOUNT OF PUNCTUATION THAT COULD POSSIBLY CONVEY HOW SERIOUS I AM ABOUT YOUR MAP SHADES.

    MAP SHADES.

    I’ll just keep saying it.
