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 :)
