Despite a lengthy trip to the library for story time and a stop off at Target (which is never a quick trip) I managed to get some sewing in today during naps and finished up Caroline's dress. I used the Geranium pattern from Made By Rae, but drafted my own sleeves.
I did the embroidery over the weekend as part of my prep for KCW. I'm new to embroidery and really just making it up as I go along. I was inspired by Japanese sashiko embroidery- look it up, it's beautiful! I love that it is made up of such simple stitches.
The fabric came from a hand me down dress from my sister in law. It was one of those dresses that looked like it should be cute but looked pretty terrible on so it went in to my 'box of misfit clothes', if you will, until I found a higher purpose for it. This little lady sports it like nobody's business. A perfect fall staple, I do believe. I love how these look with her fancy pants leggings from yesterday.
