To feel your bare feet
And the winds long to
play with your hair.
~ Khalil Gibran
I used Olive Ann Designs Butterscotch pattern. We have had some cute prints in the store and I wanted to try it for Mae. Since my girls have moved to the beach and are already wearing sundresses, I couldn't wait to finish this one.
The bows were put on a little differently than I expected, they are 2 completely separate parts. After I had attached the first piece, I thought maybe this wasn't such a good choice for Mae, the bodice looked like a swimsuit top and I didn't really like the look. As I read ahead though, I saw that the bow actually went on top of this piece, and it changed the look completely.
The good (not so good) news is, this pattern comes with a pattern for the same dress for an 18" doll. Dad Gummit! I am tired of sewing for dolls and I don't know why, it is just not my favorite way to spend my time in the sewing room. Oh Well, I am sure when I tell Mae, I know what my next project will be...
