Whew ~ “After Christmas Cool Down”

Good afternoon, Internet-Land! Here we are, two days after Christmas. I hope yours was great. We had such a good day. I have so much for which to be thankful. Most of all ~ my family. We spent the day at my parents’ home with children, siblings, nieces, nephews, and new extended family as all these kids are growing up & starting families of their own.

Yesterday I thought I’d give the Fall Fancy party dress pattern a try. I put together the American Model size. I must admit, I’m not too nice to myself, as it is probably the most difficult doll pattern I’ve ever sewed!!! It was kind of a pain figuring out how to have the over lapping sections of the bodice all fully lined, and yet fit together right. Finally, after removing several seams several times, I got it done. Not too bad for a first attempt at a new pattern. I think there might be a couple pieces I will “tweak” to get a more streamline look, but all in all, very happy with how it turned out. Thought you might like to see what it looks like when finished. Will chat again soon ~ bye!
