Pink Circle Dress


I know it's been ages since I've put anything up on my blog. But I do have a few things that have been hanging around, patiently waiting to be shared with my blog-viewing friends...and some pics coming soon of what has been occupying my time for the last couple of weeks. For now, just a quick one. 

I came home last week from meeting with a group of ladies to discuss One Thousand Gifts. What a surprise I got to find nobody home! Peace. Aaaah. Time to sew!

I used the same method as for my daughter's Jubilee Dress and sewed this pink dress in one afternoon! The skirt is from some fabric I picked up at my mom's neighbor's garage sale when I was in California earlier this summer and the top is one that came in the three-pack I bought for the Jubilee Dress. I didn't have any wide elastic, so I used some narrower and it worked really well for the dress. Of course and most importantly, my daughter loved it, . Her best friend stopped by as I was just finishing the hem and asked me to make her one, too! I couldn't say no, especially since I knew I had enough of the pink spotty fabric and one more tank from the three-pack. They are really excited to have matching dresses...and hopefully I'll be able to get some cute pics of them together when I finish the other dress.
