Rather feverish sewing, actually. I’m working a bunch this week so the sewing time is tight.
But, I have made some progress, at least, on my niece’s birthday dress. Still not sure how I’ll handle the dickie… I love the suggestion of an undershirt or slip, but lack ambition. I will do a side zip, though.
And at some point I’ll get to sew for MEEEEEE dammit!

Could you just do a small triangle modesty panel? That might be easier, and it would be super cute made out of a scrap of eyelet.
That’s basically what the original dickie was. I may just go that route, though.
Oooo, pretty fabrics! It’s going to look super cute.
…is there enough of that fabric for something pretty for you? (I admire your perseverance in making stuff for others. Love the guys shirts! I’ve never sewn anything bigger than a change purse for anyone. Although now that I think of it, I’ve never actually knit anything for me. lol)
LOL! … so, I figured I could get this dress out of 1m of fabric (of each kind.) Turned out, when I checked the envelope after, it called for 1 7/8 yards. Heh. This was like the tightest fabric tetris ever. None of the scraps are more than a few inches long!
See, knitting takes WAY more time than sewing for people. Well, usually. 😉
I love that eyelet. It has a lovely proportion about it, not overly delicate.
Yeah, I like that it was not too twee. Though it’s still pretty sweet. 😉
The navy – white eyelet combo is great …. and I’m very impressed you got the pieces all cut with so little fabric.
PS sewing time for Tanit. Sewing time for Tanit. Sewing time for Tanit. Sorry I was supposed to say that in my head for you 🙂
So cute! And maybe the Sewing Gods will repay your sewing kindness with more parcels in the post or more sewing machines turning up in local shops?
