Sew So

Kelly and I attacked her prairie dress project today, in earnest. We did the bodice, or upper part of the dress. Lacking a functional sewing machine, all sewing was done by hand. So all our stitches look like basting stitches, and I don't hold out much hope for the thing holding together longer than it takes to do the show and tell.

Even though this is a Simplicity pattern, I had to read the directions several times to figure things out, and we still have some exposed seams, and one reversed piece of fabric. I'm hoping the skirt portion goes a little more smoothly.

As for the bonnet, I'm hoping Kelly will lose interest before we get there!
