So, as mentioned in my last post, I whipped up a dress for my daughter to wear for our family pictures. I LOVE IT. So pleased with how it turned out!
Simplicity pattern 3854. I made my own bias tape for the little bolero, and I think it really adds something to it. There is an awesome tutorial here (it's a PDF and won't link directly, so scroll down the page until you see Tutorials on the right sidebar) on how to make bias tape.
As usual, sandwiched the seam of foldover elastic between the decorative part (in this case, the yo-yo's) and a layer of felt and hot glued the thing together.
(This is why I love crafty blogging. The generous sharing of ideas!!!)
