back in the sewing saddle
Our library page, Chelsea, is leaving for college (in Duluth!) in a couple of weeks and her going away party is Saturday night. I wanted to make her a little something and this is what I decided on. Duluth can be chilly and I hope this will help keep her a bit cozier as she's walking to class. The back is fleece and all the front fabrics are from my stash. She has a really cool style and I hope that she will at least consider wearing this. I have to admit it was kind of daunting to make something for a teenager, even one as sweet & cool as Chelsea. (read: it made me feel OLD)
Since the front of the dress was stained I had to use the back, the plaid piece on the bottom with the buttons. I am so happy with how it turned out...she can unbutton that middle button and stash some cash or a cel phone inside. I am definitely going to make more of these. Lots more. Expect to see many, many more...maybe in my Etsy shop.
(or I will lose interest next week but hopefully not before I sew up the other 4 (different ones) that I already cut out!)
