I finally bought a Made By Rae pattern, the Geranium Dress. I have read so much about them in the sewing blog world but for some reason, I hadn’t purchased any of the patterns!
I sewed my first Geranium for Molly in a beautiful blue fabric that I got from fabric.com. I also got a lot of fabrics to make myself some washi dresses (I have one done already and it’s a wonderfully comfortable dress).
Back to this dress, I sewed up a size two, even though she technically measured for the 18M size. I figured it would be best to have a little room to grow, right?
I really love this pattern. The instructions were wonderfully easy to follow. The fit is perfect (aside from picking a size a little bit to big. Even so, I think it looks very nice on her!). Un-hemmed, the skirt was really long on Molly, so I simply fold up it to a really deep hem and whip-stitched it to finish. I figure that when she gets taller, I can let the hem out and keep using it the dress!
Did anyone else notice the lovely BBQ sauce stain on it? Haha! Maybe I shouldn’t point it out but it’s there, on the web, looking at everyone. Oh well! That’s what happens when you let a toddler where a dress all day that you plan to photograph in the evening.
She didn’t come running up to the camera this time 😦 She must be growing up!
