Horse Dress

As you could tell by the WhiteBoard Wednesday this week I had two projects completed – both of Callee’s dresses. Monday, I blogged about her Feather Dress and today I will share her Horse Dress. This is the one I think she’s most excited about but in the end I think she will enjoy wearing the other more (I’m not sure why though).

Here is the finished project:

horse dress

Oddly, this is a dress I would love to have in my size. It looks incredibly comfortable for an adult. I’m not sure how flattering it would be on my figure but -eh…enough about me.

I put great thought into making sure all the horse were upright but in the end it is virtually impossible to cut a complete circle (the peplum) and keep them all straight up. Which is the one place my eye goes – where those two horse come together and make a blob. Reminds me of one of those ink blots – what do you see? I see, a huge, glaring mistake #UGH (are we back here again – see this post?)

N.E.Way….Oh, speaking of mistakes…

horse sleeve detail

The sleeves ended up with two stitch lines because one was longer than the other so one needed a narrower hem but they looked silly with one big seam and one narrow seam so I made them match with two stitch lines. Innovative? Maybe not, but it works.

I was just wondering …. why am I putting my mistakes on here?  You know why…so we can all learn from them. Maybe one day, you will have sleeves that one longer than the other and think now what? Oh I remember that time Rhonda had two stitch lines….I’m here to serve, and share my DOH moments.

I will be seeing Callee (and her parents) tonight so I will get some pics of her in her new dresses!

I’m off to my Angel!!!

Zippy Bag & FMQ Practice

orphan blocks1

Part of my Finish A Long list were some orphan blocks I’ve had laying around for quite some time. I knew they would make for good FMQ practice but I couldn’t just practice and then discard them. I had these two coordinating blocks that I knew would make a cute (if not slightly large) zippy […]

I had to make some adjustments on PicMonkey and I’m certainly no Photo Editing Professional. heheh Believe you me, I know just how ambitious this list is! […]

Serious Catch-up **UPDATED**

Callee feb27

I have a great deal of catch-up to do today. I think it has been an entire month since I have posted. I could list a million reasons why but instead I think it’s more important to move forward (who knows maybe admissions will leak out as we move ahead **wink, wink**). So, in the […]
