With Mary's tutoring and just plain taking over at certain points, I was able to piece together something that I can proudly call my first sewn dress.
(Please try to ignore the rusty hand rail and weird residue on the front door. One of these days I will have a camera that blurs the background like the one above with cute Matilda model girl. Man, will that come in handy!)
In the last year I have also become acquainted with fabric designed by Amy Butler and have frequented Treadle Yard Goods to purchase fun fabrics. Amy's fabrics helped bring Matilda's inspiration to life. Thanks, Amy. Thanks, Matilda. Thanks, Cute Girl from Music Class and Big Huge Label on back of cute girl's dress.
P.S. Notice how the blue fabric at the hem of her dress is strikingly similar to the background of this blog? I salivate when I see these blues.
