Girlie Dress


On Friday night I sewed a new dress for Spenser (Simplicity 4767, view A). It is sewn from a thrifted sheet I picked up last week. It has sweet little bugs and butterflies on it. It's springy. And feminine. And looks comfy. She will have more ... No doubt about it.

That is darling! I never find cute sheets or fabric when thrifting and am so jealous of y'all who do find them!

You gotta love the thrifted sheets:) I got some cool 70's ish ones this weekend at some yard sales! Projects to come. The dress turned out so cute!

Spenser is one lucky girl. My sewing class starts tomorrow! Maybe someday bug'll get a garment or two as adorable and wearable as that dress.
