I have been trying out some new patterns for Anna since we are taking a break from homeschool for the next couple days the boys have picked up a cold and I am treating them with garlic and a few other herbs & vitamins. But most importantly I am letting them rest so if they feel up to do something they can but if they would rather curl up in bed with a book then they can do that too! This is just one of the many blessings of homeschooling.
Anna needs a few new dresses to welcome the spring with as winter has not stopped her growing at all and although I do think of her as my little flower she is definitely growing as some would say like a weed.
This sewing machine was a gift from my husband a few years ago and makes sewing such a pleasure. With this machine button holes are a breeze you literally just press a button and it does it all for you.
I tried out a new pattern that I really liked. It is Butterick 3762 and I made this in a size 8 for Anna. This is a very generous size 8 and fits her very nice. This dress was very easy to sew and I adjusted the pattern by not adding a zipper and putting buttons instead. Anna has very sensitive skin and a polyester zipper would not be nice rubbing on her back. The only thing it needs is a small snap at the top above the first button hole. But that will have to wait until my next trip into the city. Anna seems to pay no mind to this anyhow and has happily put the dress on and has run outdoors to break it in. Lets hope she can run fast enough from Wyatt's slobbering face!
Here are some snapshots of Anna's New Dress.
