She really did make me do it.

That is Made by Rae.  She came out with this pattern a couple months or so ago and I thought "Oooohhhh" But I knew S wouldn't really like it because it has "stuff" up around the neck and its 3/4 sleeves.  But I kept thinking about it, and thinking about it, and damn I kept thinking about it.  I started to think maybe I could entise her if I made it in flannel and I let her help me.  Ah Ha.  Surely she will love it.  So I bought the flannel and got busy.  I did cut it on the bias and didnt really measure her for the size I just cut the size 5 and hoped for the best I knew if anything it would be too big.

Well I tried it on her before I stitched up the elastic around the neck and hemmed it all.  Boy am I glad.  She was so excited to try it on after helping me sew on that ruffle.  Before it was even all the way on screaming ensued.  Pulling at the neck and general hatred.  Well really I wasn't suprised. So what am I to do??  I ended up adding four inches of elastic to the neck line and When she tried it on....Success. She liked it and wore it the rest of the day.  It is a bit challenging when we need a jacket on cause of those big sleeves but she looks fantastic in it and....she likes it, she really likes it.

Do blondes really have more fun?

Gotta love the bias cut swing. 

Can I officially call this sun flare??

Well, how about you.  What are your latest triumphs?

I'm glad that she likes it. It looks so comfy, though I'm not sure if my daughter would wear it as I've just discovered (she told me) that she prefers sleeveless.
