When I sew, I evaluate where I want to walk on the line between comfort and practicality versus design and my aesthetic in general because sometimes there's a bit of a gap. This was one of those cases.
E was originally going to be e for embroidery using some fantastic machine embroidered material I got in Korea, but it was on the fancy side as I gathered supplies to begin, and perhaps it will still come to fruition, but not as a play dress to be worn on the playground and while hand painting, which is as it should be. Good job, Katy, keeping things in check.
And really, practicality is not 100% on this one, a maxi dress on a preschooler, but if I was entirely practical I wouldn't be me, right, love?I got this roughly sketched elephant stamp on ebay one day and sometimes I don't read size description very thoroughly because I underestimated how large it actually was. In fact, I've done that on more than one occasion. I once bought (online) two "little" vases I thought would be perfect for single stems and they turned out to be a foot and a half tall. It was quite the surprise. I ought to stop doing that.
Clover declared this her most favorite dress, so the client is happy.
If you've read my blog for any amount of time, you'll recognize that it's just my simple elastic bobbin gathering Maxi dress (here). It works best with really lightweight fabric, which is still being used in this climate of ours, despite our pleading for some cooler weather.
