It is true...time passes faster as you grow older. I am having a hard time accepting it's April already. But I know it is...because Momo has been telling me April Fool's jokes everyday since the 1st. And her jokes are pretty bad...they are like, "There is a monster on your head!" or "There is a monkey behind you!" No, Momo, the monkey is right in front of me, telling me the joke ;)
Anyway before the summer is officially here, I wanted to get this spring dress done. Momo should be able to wear it in the summer too, but this strawberry prints screams "spring" to me.
I did not want to make a full gathered skirt with twill fabric, even though it is light-weight. But the dress still needed to be twirly and sweet to please this picky girl. I went through the books and patterns I have, took my time because I did not want to waste the fabric. Finally I chose the Secret Garden Dress pattern, and made the simple version without the flounce. I thought the flounce would make the dress a bit too heavy, and would limit the days Momo can wear the dress.
Maybe it's the fabric, or maybe it's the extra length I added...the dress sometimes show the unflattering wrinkles in places. I did not notice this when I made the dress with flounces. I think it did not look too bad in person, and am guessing it's only apparent because I was going through the photos that show Momo's various moves. She was showing me the new dance moves she learned at school...
Momo has picked another fabric out of my stash, but I am going to need time again to decide the best pattern to go with it. Meanwhile, Momo has this new strawberry dress and plenty of other dresses she can wear ;)
Linking up to those fun parties.
