Simplicity 3856 & Children's Corner patterns






I turned 38 yesterday. My Best friend sent me this birthday card, isn't it sweet? That's me and her, the brunette and the blonde.







Lots to blog about today



Update:



The smocking is coming along, slowly but surely. Now I am working on the organdy collar. I decided not to go with the collar on the pattern, but to create my own. I drew a design on



tracing paper after tracing the dress yoke.





















Next, I made a denim skirt using Simplicity 3856


















I made the gores larger (1") for added fullness. I left the edges raw. I like the look of denim after washing and it frays. This denim has tiny multi colored sequins all over it.










The blouse is a Children's Corner pattern. I made a Hello Kitty bow to match. Of course, I had to put the crinoline I made from a vintage pattern (see older post) under it.

That skirt is adorable! The model is pretty cute too! I like how you made it fuller skirt- little girls need skirts they can twirl in. :-)

Thank you. You see, she poses now. Truth is, I'd like to twirl in a sparkly skirt too.
