I've been busy!

...but unfortunately not sewing much.  I am developing a brand new style of interfacing, getting the remainder of last week's orders shipped, and then taking a few much needed days off.

However I did manage to find a little time yesterday to sew this dress for little Brooklyn, age two...


This is not one of my designs, it is from a Pattern Designer on Etsy...  
The patterns she designs are easy enough for beginners, and more experienced sewists can easily see where to use more sophisticated techniques...like interfacing the facings and edge-stitching the bodice and straps. And on this dress I made it easier for Brooklyn's mommy on washing day, by edge-stitching both the inner and outer edges of the front pleat....that way it stays "pleated" with no ironing :)

Very thoughtful with the pleat - who needs extra ironing...looks very 'little girlie'...

That's a great tip on no-iron pleats Pam - my daughter refuses to iron so I mainly sew knits for my grandchildren. Opens things up a bit!

Those are some sweet dresses you've made, Pam. Lucky little girls! And thanks for the tutorial for washable flowers. I did something like that with some flowers I sewed onto baby hats that I knit, but didn't think to use Fray Check. Will do better next time.

Such a cute little dress. And a great tip on edge stitching the pleats. It makes such a difference. Like Karen, my DD doesn't iron. I end up doing most of it and it makes my life easier!

I like the tip on sewing down the pleat.
I have to rave about your interfacing and can't wait to see whats new to come. I have been using your interfacing for 2 years now. I love, love, love it and recommend your site to all my sewing friends. I placed a big order, adding some new types of interfacings to my stash, during the sale and now I am enjoying looking at my well stocked interfacing shelf.
I can't thank you enough for making this great interfacing available to home sewers.

Very cute! Sewing for little kids is instant gratification--they go together so quickly. Also curious about your new interfacing!
