Freeform Sewing

If sewing was like music, this dress would be freeform jazz. The other day I just grabbed some fabric scraps and started sewing. This is what happened...

The base of the dress is a large piece of purple flannel that I had leftover. It was already cut into a half-circle shape.

From there I cut a neck and some arms holes. I cut strips of the pink fabric on the bias. To give it a little different look, I didn't finish any of the edges (other than using a zig-zag stitch). I love "techniques" that double as a time-saver :)

If only getting BB to pose for pictures was as easy as sewing... well... then I probably wouldn't feel the need to post a picture of her playing roulette. That is what it's called, right?

I also used some of the leftover pink strips to make a matching headband. She actually kept it on her head for at least 30 minutes. This might be a new record! I think she forgot about it when she was so busy running from the camera and making goofy faces.

Thanks for stopping by!  Happy Holidays :)
