Remember Lily’s dress that I showed you a few days ago? I finished Penny’s dress last night using the same material and a pattern that is similar in that it is also a jumper with box pleats. This pattern is New Look 6769. Her measurements fell right between a size 1 and 2 so I went with the 2. It is slightly long but I left it that way because I think I can get two years out of it! I have my mom to thank for the nice neat zipper. I have mentioned here before that sewing zippers into clothing is probably my biggest sewing frustration. I have become decently good at it when using cotton or flannel but I just knew that this velveteen would give me trouble. My mom said that it was tricky so I am so glad that she did it for me!
And no dress up outfit is complete without new hair bows! Lily will wear the two barrettes and Penny, the little clip.
