About a month ago, Iris started dropping hints that she wanted a new dress for the promotion ceremony (from middle school to high school). When I made Vogue 1224 for a friend's daughter last summer, Iris said it was a really cute dress and she would like one, too. I pulled out the pattern and we went through my stash until we agreed on this piece.
If you want to look thin, don't stand next to a sub-100# 12 year old. Just saying. I blurred out the other kids' faces, but the sample in this photograph is fairly representative of her school population. (I'm wearing Burda 2011-02-101, originally shown in Make something out of silk month.)
There was enough fabric left over to sew a top for me from Vogue 1020. Stay tuned.
