Kid's Clothes Week Day 5

More than an hour was used for sewing time today.  I got the fabric ready, measured and sized the design of the dress we wanted to make, marked and cut out the dress.  Then I had time to do some stitching, preparing the hems and will finish up tomorrow.  Once again we are using the Women's Metro T-Shirt pattern by Liesl + Co.  Size M through the shoulders and neck (front neckline dropped, slightly) and size L through the width, then A Line shaped and lengthened for the dress.  This is a longer style dress with a high low hemline.

Olivia likes the chevron pattern fabrics, as do I.  This dress is being made form the Riley Blake collection.  The knit is made form 95% cotton 5% spandex and it's so soft and wonderful to wear.  It's also wonderful to sew.

This will be Olivia's third dress this week.   It's wonderful to see the wardrobe getting fulfilled....just in time, I'm sure, for another growth spurt. ;)

Tomorrow I will finish up the dress and we might have time to cut out and start one more garment....we hope!

Back tomorrow......good night! :)
