I was really happy with the end result and most fabric came from my stash except for the netting for the petticoat and the Velcro® for the back closure. By Thursday afternoon I was pretty well finished with the dress except for needing to buy the Velcro®. I thought, hum, I have a doll sweater in pieces just waiting to be put together. I'll finish that too. Except, wait, Ruby, the doll, would need a pair of pants to wear with the sweater. So on to making a pair a "jeans."
The sweater got sewn together and the snaps were done on the back. It's a good thing I have all sorts of odd ball stuff from my previous days of sewing clothes because I had the perfect size of snaps to sew on the back.
Ellie loved all the clothes and immediately put the pants and sweater on Ruby. Except evidently she doesn't like the patch pockets on the jeans because she put them on backwards. Sigh.
As I said, no piecing but a very productive week. Between Monday's morning long Veterans Day program in our community and pretty much a full day rehearsal for the Spotsylvanians on Saturday, I've had a really busy week!
My goals for this week is to make more progress on various Christmas presents which will remain unnamed. Just know that I have a list of several things to be done and some planned time to work on them. (Hopefully, I've planned enough time!) I'm also going to sneak in one more top to be quilted this week along with working on QOV at the guild on Wednesday.
I'm linking up with Oh Scrap!, Monday Making, and Design Wall Monday. When you have a spare moment, take a look.
Happy Quilting All! Bonnie
