project six ~to pick up sticks...

This really cute fabric was going to be a reversible dress for my sweet neice Fi for her Birthday last year ~she has an early summer Birthday so nothing works better than a summer dress for such an occasion ~plus the reversible part of this dress makes it perfect for those days that the popcicle gets away from you but you still need to look clean ~easy enough you just turn the dress inside out and you are good to go, your skin just gets a little sticky maybe. The really sad thing about this dress ~oh it has the seams sewn ~it has about a half hours worth of sewing and pressing that needs to be done to have it ready to wear. But the real tragedy is my sweet neice had a total growth spurt as children tend to do and there is no way it is going to fit this next summer ~oh so crappy.

It is cute! You can always save it for the next niece...

Please tell me that in digging all these projects out that you are working on them, or have a game plan to do like one a week!?!?! I'll come be all creative with you one night- I'll even bring an old school movie we can make fun of!

O.K., so you are the fix-it queen as well as the project queen. You can just add a ruffle to make it long enough. It would still be reversible if it was a finished ruffle with the raw edges sewn into the hem of the dress. Go for it. You can do it. Anyway Fi has only gotten taller, not broader.
