I went over to my cousin Rozi's house today to start prepping up for the 20 books order for JIS. So while I was cutting boards and paper and gluing, I was also teaching Rozi how to make a pillowcase dress for Baby D.
Luckily, in one of the donated stash I have received were two pillowcases. One was blue and one was more in green moss brown flowery print. Unfortunately I didn't take a photo of that.
Rozi cleared up a table and got the sewing machine that her mother gave her out. A few tests and it's working great after not in use for a decade? I think.
I taught her how to measure up for the arm holes using a sleeveless top Dyanna has.
Mark and Cut
And how to hem the neck for the ribbon to go through
We ran through a few machine techie glitches, like the thread snapped, the bobbin got tangled, usual stuff. Rozi was feeling rather "what i have to sew it all over again?" hehehe
Very determined to get it done.
Ribbon in, one edge was sewn nicely until I told her that I shortcut queen suggest using glue.
When all was done. we tried to get the toddler to wear it and keep it on and pause long enough for a decent picture. Unfortunately.
Ran and climbed the bench while i was chasing her and trying to get a photo op and making sure she doesn't fall.
Those ruffles were already on the pillowcase and were too cute to remove.
