Project 4: A ruffle makes everything better!

For those who know me, I don't really believe that.  I am not a pink, lace and ruffle kind of girl.  I can neither confirm nor deny that pink may or may not be showing up in some of my future quilts however.  So this is another project that has been taunting me for a while.  I originally made this slip without the ruffle, I really should have taken a before picture.  I made it for a tiny little girl ("B"), daughter of my really good friend "S", but because she was very tiny at the time I had to leave the ruffle off or she would have been dragging the fabric.  But then she grew, and grew and grew some more so it was time to rip a few stitches out and add the ruffle.  I have actually been making children's clothes and costumes for 16 years!  It is really hard to pick my favorites though.  I am being tempted back to clothes making by Oliver +S patterns.  They are the type of clothes I want my children to wear, so I have been thinking of continuing my wardrobe formation for my future children's trunk, sort of like a baby hope chest.

  1. Sweet one,
    I told you I would come visit you and I always keep my promises!! I want you to know after having read several of your posts and finding out you miscarried twins, that I offer my sincerest sympathy! Your heart must ache for your precious Angel babies. I think your husband is a real keeper for instinctively knowing that a craft/sewing room makeover was just what your heart needed. He is a true Hero!
    Come back to Grnadmamas Stories where I talk about quilting, sewing, my 5 grandchildren, life on my farm, and a little of everything else.
    Blessings To YOu
