In the home stretch...

Ok, still wasting time. Completed Simplicity 1794 for my niece. I completed the bib and the dress. It was an ego boost to have something complete.


But then it was back to the blouse. It is Butterick 5211. I already had the pieces ready, so I started slow and steady. I love the pink and the shirting cotton. It's starting to come together. It was easier than I thought but I always have trouble with collars, so I am expecting the worst.

Follow ups:

  • My blanket looks great now, but I am still missing the binding. (lost in the sewing room somewhere) 
  • And the dress does look great on:

Still looking for a easy maxi dress pattern and I think I want to get rid of some yarn with a crochet project. Keep a look out.


  1. the little dress& bib are adorable, great job on the blouse, I did princess seams for the first time this week & all that clipping was a scary thing lol! you look great in your dress, great job!

  2. The pieces you made for your neice are adorable. You did a really good job on your dress. It seems like you got a lot accomplished. Btw, have you thought about using Mimi G's T-shirt maxi tutorial? I purchased it and her instructions were really easy to follow.

  3. Such beautiful sewing, I hope to learn to sew some clothes for myself this year.........your blog is lovely.

  4. Your dress looks great!! Its really flattering on you.
