I have been working on a little sewing project for what feels like forever.
It really wasn't that difficult. In fact the pattern for New Look 6478 said it was easy.
And it was mostly. My problems were that I am really self taught unless you count the home ec class I took back in middle school a bazillion years ago.

Some took me a bit to figure out and then once I did it made total sense. I just don't like how pattern instructions are written and shown with the pictures. They really are not very clear.

This was how it looked on the hanger.

Of course it looked better on.

That elastic on the top of the back was really throwing me for a loop in the directions. That was a main once the light bulb went off it was a piece of cake.

And we have to have a model pose of course.

I think I would make this again but the tie straps that go around her neck need to be a bit longer. Plus I think it would be cute if it had something added to the neckline. It is supposed to have a little ribbon bow sewn on but I didn't have any plain pink ribbon so I may still add that. Or something.

The best part is she loves it. She loves when I make her dresses. I just need to find more time to be able to do these things since I love it too.

The one thing I cant sew is clothes! I can make all household things, recover couches and chairs and make quilts...but I cannot make anything as beautiful as this! I am jealous!!!
