There once was a 9th grade girl who took Home Ec. One day, her teacher had assigned the class to pick a pattern she had provided. The little girl chose a dress. She went to the fabric store and bought the materials she needed. She worked and worked and worked on this dress. It was a very difficult pattern. In fact, it was so difficult, that when she had finished it, it looked NOTHING like the picture on the pattern envelope. One sleeve was longer than the other. The dress came way down to her ankles when it was supposed to be around the knees. As for the chest area? Well, let's just say it was awkwardly unfitting. From that moment on, the 9th grader swore off any kind of sewing FOREVER!
Twenty-something years later, she saw the most awesome little girl's jacket. With the inspiration at hand, she reluctantly seemed to give it one more go. Here is the finished project:
Here is the front view of my little model!
Here is the rear view. I'm just excited that it is even with the front! :o)
Here is a closeup of the buttons. I'm not trying to brag (okay, maybe a little!), but doesn't this picture look like it should be in a catalog somewhere? Oh how my photography practice is paying off!
Okay, so I just love the next two pictures and I had to post them as well!
UPDATE: As my lovely Aunt pointed out in the comments, it was NOT thirty-something years later, more like twenty-something years later! Okay, so I didn't excel to well in math either. But shh...it's our little secret! LOL!
