As usual, I'm in shock. Did I REALLY last make an Apple Picking Dress in 2015????? (Last post is seen HERE.) No. Seriously????! That doesn't seem right, and I feel there is a lost blog post - or a post never written, aha.
Either way, sad times, as I love the pattern and apparently wish I'd made a million more.
For all the extra work a button placket CAN be, this goes together quickly and has a polished look about it. My only issue with this version is that the spot where the tie meets the placket is frageeeelay. I don't normally feel this way, so, I'm not sure if it's the Joann Fabrics shirting I used. I added some zigzag stitching to that spot, and I ended up pinching the main bodice fabric in doing so. It's not super noticeable, but I'm bummed, though I hope it holds. I definitely don't want to rip it out, as that whole area needs no added stress. And I have naturally instructed Camden to not yank on the ties at all.
|This maybe shows the color best.. and a great view of the bad apple, aha!|
Anyway, I always do the double skirt version, and it turned out really well - I can't wait to have her wear this on Friday to her seventh day of school!!
So...days in the life of!!!
