really nice pattern, looks great (like the material)
Tooked a little while, but it is very pretty!!!!!***
This turned out so pretty!!! I know what you mean about some projects drive you crazy - I have had a few too!!! Gosh, but, you may have to make your first granddaughter something just to "even things out" - hehehe! 4U*
Great that you finished it, will the new reciepitant actually wear it, now a days it's shorts and jeans. Very lovely work!!
Well I think you did a great job!
Famous last words, never again, buuut the things we will do for our children & grand children. U know I really think that's why God makes grandmothers to do special things, & yes I have many ufos & guess what, mom has been dead now for many yrs, & every now & then I get out one of her many ufos & finish it up, passing it on to a grand or great grand of hers. *4U
love the dress and yes i have many a cut pierce ready to sew.only some of miene go back 20 odd years or more. Shame on me.
check the pins.. they do rust..
My God, this is soooooooo pretty! Simply wonderful!
thank you.. my granddaughter came over the other day and it was still not finished.. she will be surprised to see grandma finished it..
I too have cut-out projects for my daughter, (since she was about that same age, who is now grown. I also have the old notions with the old prices on them. Boy, talk about inflation. There's hope for us and our UFOs! This is very cute.
Very cute! She will love it I'm sure! I'd love to see a picture with her wearing it. You did a great job on it. It looks better than one that you could purchase from a store. I have some UFO's in my stash of sewing and craft stuff. I have stock piled alot of material over the last 20 years. I did part with a few pieces of my stash and donated some of it last year to a church who distributes to needy people in our area.
Great job! It is really cute and now another grand daughter will get to enjoy it for her 5th birthday. I am sure it is a relief to have completed an UFO! You have given us all motivation to tackle our own UFOs!
That is very pretty. I think we all have some UFO's somewhere! I am about to move my sewing room to a bigger room. I just about imagine what I am going to find under all the stacks! Great job on the dress!
nice job! and couldn't be more in style today, as it would have been 14 years ago! Can you share what pattern this was? it really is very cute! A+
that pattern is a Simplicity 7575 size 5 is cute.. if you are in the U.S. I will send it to you.. kathy
Kathy...I live in Michigan...I'd LOVE it! How about some handmade soap for a trade? you can get me at firstname.lastname@example.org
but the dress is so beautiful, your GD will love it.it's great you finished it after all !!
Well, the dress will be one of a kind since anyone will be hard pressed to find the same prints on their dress. It looks lovely, the gold ribbon does finish it of nicely!
Now YOU are a woman who is persistant! Perhaps it was just meant for DGD! It is lovely.
Better late than never, it looks great. Now your 5 year old can wear it. Lynn
The dress looks lovely. Luckily styles like this don't go out of fashion. My ufo's include a couple that are so dated, they are only right for a fancy dress party!
well the dress looks lovely - Thank goodness that the pins did not rust.I also have ufo's things that I intend to sew for myself and never get to it. *4U Yvonne
Very very pretty. Well done.
Oh it looks sew lovely, you cannot rush these things huh? I would have PLENTY of UFO's lying around, I am sure my GD's WILL FIND...
It's never too late. I think we all have those UFO's in the corner somewhere. Well done. Just think if you kept it longer it may just me an "heirloom" oops
If I kept it any longer I would have donated it to the DAV..
That is a stunning dress and will make your little GD look so pretty - I hope the older one doesn't get upset when she sees it finished - knowing it was for her - Hehehe! I had a couple things for my daughter - when her daughter came and went past that size - I finially gave them away - I don't sew much any more.
that is so pretty. I have lost of UFO's too.
I have lots of patterns I buy with good intentions on making the outfit. Then I discovered my daughter grew faster than I could sew them - LOL!
my problem is.. this dress was cut 14 years ago .. at least I used good pins and they did not rust on the fabric.. so funny...
I have an awful lot of UFOs. I wonder If I will ever finish them?!
I hv too many UFO's lol ~ don't we all
That little dress is adorable. A lot of work went into it, but it will look great on & I'm sure will be adored by many.
Sounds like something I would. I have some cutout projects in a box that go back 2 or 3 years. I even looked fora pair of capris that I thought I had made and finally found them with pattern still pinned on them ready to make.
that's funny... I wonder some times if I will finish the UFO's before I die..
