TLo has never lost a tooth that The Big One didn’t knock out. Seriously. Right now she looks like Vampire Girl.
Lest you labor under the false impression that I haven't sewn anything the past month or two:
I made this.
I also made several other summer tops/dresses for TLo. Really. I just continue to suffer from a complete and utter lack of interest in discussing them. Or photographing them.
I will tell you that on this one, I started with this pattern (Ottobre 1-2009 #35)
and then altered the front so as to not have to suffer through making a totally superfluous (i.e. too fiddly for me to deal with more than once) front placket.
I did do the front placket on the first version I made of this. Honest. But it was so totally annoying that I decided to just pare it down to the little placket version you see now. To make the closures, I used salvaged buttons and some purple hair elastics. Which is pretty cool. Admit it.
Oh, and I converted the gathers to pleats. I just prefer pleats.
