Stinkin' patterns

Yesterday, I made Nora a dress...that she will be able to wear in 2-3 years. Sigh. This is an example of why I don't make clothes for my kids. I follow the pattern, using her measurements, and the dress turns out to be a tent.


At least she seems happy with it.
So, I made another, using different measurements. Measurements that are NOT Nora's, they are for a smaller child.

But the dress fits this time. And that is all that matters.

She is not as willing a model the second time around.

I'm going to make Elyn a dress today. Hopefully only ONE dress. These dresses will make another appearance at the beach, in two weeks.

Those are fabulous. For real, that's a great color on Nora. I do that all the time, especially when I've spent a lot of time putting in zippers and what-not and then it ends up fitting all three put together ...
