School is back in session so I haven’t had many opportunities to sew in the past few weeks. But I have been working on a few things for my sister Christie here and there.
One of them was fix Hannah’s dress. She loves to jump on the trampoline and the side seam on the lower dress fabric just didn’t hold up. It is a super cute dress which was a hand-me-down originally purchased from one of those boutiques for $35! Crazy how high they can mark up something so simple!
Christie’s sewing machine wasn’t cooperating when I was in Seattle, I told her I would bring it home and surge it…which took me like 30 seconds. Piece of Cake!
Then I remembered I had a little pink shirt that was Hannah’s size so I found some matching fabric, copied the sizing from the original dress, and viola…
A cute new dress. And I think the shirt cost $2 and the fabric was probably about $2, so a $4 project, though I both supplies already sitting at home…not bad!
The cotton bottom should hold up on this one…even on the trampoline. I can’t wait until she sees it…she will be so excited!
Until later, happy sewing!
