We got up this morning and headed out to Hancock Fabrics for thread. Lucky for me, they were having their Memorial Day sale. I got 2 spools of thread (30% off), orange buttons, and 3 McCall’s patterns ($.99 each!!!) I got over $40.00 worth of patterns for $3! Yay! I love it when they have sales like that! Now I know why when I was a little girl my mom would be in such a good mood when we left the fabric store with tons of patterns. 🙂
So, anyway, we got home and after I put Aidan down for her nap I got my needle rethreaded with the new thread and did 3 perfect practice buttonholes. So, I summoned the courage to actually make them on the dress. Success! The dress is now finished and I tried it on Aidan. It’s a little short so I’ll probably either make her some bloomers or shorts to go with it when she grows and makes it look like a shirt.
I’m in love with these little dresses and want to make more…except next time I lengthen the hem!
