Too Small? Nooooooo!

I had intended to post this yesterday, but I had things that took all my time, again.  I’m starting to think that I shouldn’t plan on doing important things on weekends since I never seem to be able to do them.  So from now on, when I say I’ll post something for the weekend, just assume I mean Monday.  Heck let’s make Monday part of the weekend, or would that just backfire on me?

Anyway, I sort of finished the dress, as in I tried to make a dress and ended up with a skirt instead.  It started out as as simple dress with an absolutely beautiful bodice.  This bodice was indeed brilliant with perfectly placed lace and details.  Everything was perfect except for the size.  I accidently made it too small for me.  I’ve been so depressed about it that I couldn’t bear to take a picture of it.  I still have it though, I cut it off from the skirt and saved it.  I figure with some tweaks I can turn it into a cute top for my niece.  As for the skirt, all it needed was a waistband.  I consoled myself by altering another t-shirt to go with the skirt.  I just did the usual kind of thing I do with t-shirts, add elastic to the sleeves, a little lace on the cut neckline, etc.  To cheer myself up, I added some ribbon neck ties, it worked.  Instead of a beautiful dress, I have a really cute outfit.  Plus, the fabric was leftover from a previous dress, which had a matching bag that I can now use for this skirt.  So everything has turned out okay.

Here’s the updated list:

  • Hair elastics
  • Acorn pins
  • Tiny shoes
  • Tiny purses
  • Dress
  • Pencils
  • Cat toys
  • Tiny dresses
  • Cloth doll
  • Tiny accessories
  • Green dress

Five down, six to go.  The next project should be up by Wednesday for sure.
