This is a fall dress made from two of the fabrics I pulled out for Alice's wardrobe. The pattern is a modified Anna Maria Tunic from the 3/09 issue of Ottobre. I turned it into a dress per Alice's request. It wound up being a looooong dress, which isn't bad because it's also pretty generous around her chest / arms. I expect this will fit her for at least two years, possibly three.

This is a UFO I finished up a few weeks ago. We call it the Karate dress but it's really a Mod Kid Kyoko. Here it is without the sash thing:
With the sash thing:
This is a church dress for the remaining warm weather. It is HUGE on her so if it is too short in the spring I'll add a ruffle around the bottom so she can wear it for church next spring and summer.

1st day of school dress

I have been so busy sewing I haven't had time to post. You see, Alice had a growth spurt and all of the clothes I had planned to use for the beginning of the school year (when it is still in the 90's here) no longer fit.

Here's the dress I made her for the first day of school:

It's on the short side for wearing when the weather warms up again in the spring but we'll cross that road then. I can always alter it into a tunic. This dress was FREE!!! Well, I paid for the thread, but that was it. I won the fabric from Chez Ami for telling them about my worst sewing disaster. The fabric I finished the neckline with was a scrap left from leggings.

Pictures of other outfits coming soon!
