The last one I made was a size 4 in the shoulders and size 6 from the bust down but with this one I kept it a size 4 in the shoulders, size 6 in the bust and shaved off some of the width from the waist and hip. I also lowered the hem at the side seams by 1/4 inch since I felt I needed just a bit more coverage.
The pose above is called "come back here we're not finished with pictures" and "look there's plenty of dirt to dig in right here- not over there!" Pictures outside are always a bit trickier with an on-the-move two year old.
And this smile is called "that's right- there's where I want you to play!" I can't think of much to say about this dress since I blogged about my first one here. but I am looking forward to wearing this year round since I plan on wearing leggings and a cardigan with it this winter and I think it is the perfect pattern for a great summer sleeveless shirt. My quilting cottons better watch out because I'm still on a stash busting craze and I'm eye-balling all those piles of fabric!! Be afraid my little crazy stacked mounds of fabric, be very afraid!
