The first time I used it was on some dark green pants for myself in the 7th or 8th grade. I was so excited to have pants that would be long enough for my legs, that I didn't pay too much attention to which way the nap lied as I was cutting them out. Inevitably I had the front of those pants with the direction going down, and in the back the direction was going up. If you looked at them from the side, they looked like two different colors of green.
Live and learn, right?
Well, this time I thought about the correct direction, and I made a couple of cute little dresses for the two Hill girlies.
"Now you're twirling pretty."
The red fabric on the side of Ells dress and bottom of C's is red ruffle fabric left over from a skirt for Lena.
The white jumper is a wide wale corduroy and the polka dot and owl print are narrow wale corduroy. Ellery's sleeves are attached red cotton knit ribbing, and Cossette's got a red onesie turtleneck under her jumper, which will fit her for at least 2 more seasons I suspect.
I need the mom (my DD) to send me a couple more pictures. One with the machine embroidery for the jumper close up, another for the closeup of the buttons on E's bodice, and again one for the hair bows.
