Sewists compete for how fast they can sew up the fabric they purchased at PR weekends. I would come in dead last because I bought about 6 months worth of fabric at my usual pace. ;-) Yesterday, I sewed up the first piece.
I found this Liberty Tana Lawn remnant at Britex and thought it would make a sweet little girl's dress. My girl is not so little, so this one is heading over to PhysicsKnits because her little girl just became a big sister.
Simplicity 4767 again. This is View A in a size 3. Because Tana Lawn can be a bit sheer, and I wanted the dress to be wearable in public, I lined the body with gray cotton voile. Of course, everything is clean finished with flat-felled and/or enclosed seams for hand-me-down quality.
Peasant blouses offer much "bang for the buck"(time) because they are relatively easy to sew and wear. Take extra care with the seams so that they don't chafe tender young skin. They will be worn right out of the laundry and never see the inside of a closet.
Iris and her cousin have 8 blouses/nightgowns and one pair of PJ pants made from this pattern.
