Meanwhile, the old machine managed to hold itself together well enough to make this sweet little dress ~
I participate in a program called Little Dresses for Africa (see more here and here).
They suggest making pillow-case style dresses, which I've done. But I decided it would be much cuter and easier for little girls to manage with this new pattern which uses a zipper instead of ties.
I have four more pieces of fabric, each just as cute as this, and can't wait to start making dresses on my soon-to-be sewing machine. I'll show you as soon as it's up and running!
Keep sewing ~
