This week we're on our way to the Sock Hop. I made it for this weeks Project Run and Play week 3 Sewing through the Decades challenge. I designed this pattern using Child's Play software I love using CP software when I don't have time to draft my own pattern (I think it's so worth $125.00 to make any type of pattern you want for kids clothing when you can't draft by hand). I did have to draft the scallops by hand because the program doesn't have a large scallop hem choice.
Zehira LOVES her new dress. She danced around the house all day today.
I am very happy with how it turned out. I'm sad that I didn't finish making all the things I had started. I wanted to finish saddle shoes and bowling bag purse to finish this look. I also have to finish a poodle skirt, dress top, and leather coat for my other daughter. AND a wool skirt, a stiff crinoline, and cardigan sweater that I also have started to go with this 1950s challenge. Honestly it might take me a week or two to finish all the things I have started... I think I will put them all to the side for now. I will stop sewing for a bit to get that drivers cap pattern posted (the ones I made last week). I can go back to 1950s sewing later on (so much for my promise to not leave any WIP around). I hope you all had as much fun sewing this week as I did!
