The movers come to pack up our house in exactly one week. So what am I doing in the meantime, as I wrap up my last week of work and get ready to move my family halfway across the world? Why, making two flower girl dresses, of course.
I volunteered to make the dresses way before we decided to move home. If I had been smarter, I would have finished them long ago. But life got in the way. So many tasks, like finding a new house in our new city. Things like that.
I made a test dress of the pattern this weekend. Thanks goodness it turned out OK, because I had no plan B. I like the square bodice and the really full skirt. The bodice pattern is from the China Grass dress from Ottobre issue #03/08. I made the test dress in a heavy twill from Chez Ami's fabric section. It has a really nice drape, making this a good winter dress for Baby G to wear in our new town.
