Today was mostly a day of fun sewing. I had a lot of sparkly tulle leftover from my granddaughter’s fairy dress and had the idea to use up some to make a fancy dress for 18” dolls. I made 2 just alike.
They looked great until I tried one on a doll. The shoulder straps were way too long. I had to unsew sections on the back, cut off about 1 ½”, insert and resew. I machine top-stitched to hold it closed. That was the unfun part. I used Simplicity pattern 3547 so I made a note on the pattern in case I use it again.
I plan to keep one and I'm not sure about the second. I still have sparkly tulle leftover.
In the afternoon I did some quilting on a cheater fabric charity top using the walking foot. I’m not finished but getting there.
