Dress for Jessica

I started with McCall's 6031 and more lovely jersey knit. I was not enjoying the way the pattern directed you to sew things together, so I went a bit more my own way. Sorry for the blah photos. One day I will have good light....  

I added a bit of pleating in the front hoping to give the little one a bit more room. It has been interesting trying to accomodate a growing baby with patterns that don't. The collar detail in the pattern seemed too large when I started so I decided on some gathered, pleated and twisted peices.

I hope you like it Jessica.

Oh, it's really fun! I like the gathers and I bet the pleats are nice and roomer. Did you have an easier time with the knit this time?

This dress is beautiful. Is it with the same yummy knit you use for the top? Love you new header.

Love the new header! And the top is gorgeous! Wish I could do something like that for Andrea. She is so nicely "top heavy" as a norm that it's not always easy for her to find tops that fit her right. If I could sew... I would sew for her! But since I can't, I'm going to steer her away from your blog! ;-)
