In a walk-in closet in my craft/sewing room I have fabric--a lot of fabric. Some of it had been given to me a year or so ago. I have it hanging from hangers so I can see what I have. This helps with the creative juices.
The other day I got into a mood to make something. I haven't made dresses for the girls in ages. The last time I made dresses there was only one girl to sew for. Now I have 4 girls. If I made something for one I would have to make for all.
In all this I had to unpick all the zippers to get them to come out right. I once put the wrong lower band on the wrong skirt. Had to unpick and resew that one on the right skirt. But over all it has been a success.
Two weeks later I have four dresses nearly complete. I didn't tell them I was making them until I needed to see if they fit. When I pulled them out last night the girls got all excited. The draw back is they have to wait until Easter to wear them. The youngest one was sure I would change my mind and let her wear it sooner.
Now I need to make ties for the boys...don't worry they won't be made with the flower print.
