Peasant for Krissy

About a week ago I picked up a pattern for a peasant shirt for Krissy. I finally got around to cutting the material out and got the body sewed together before I had to put it away last night. All I had left to do this morning was add the sleeves and the hemming. One benefit of my daughter being the same size in clothes as me is I don't have to have her here for the adjustments!


It looks like it should be a pretty quiet evening (once dinner is over) so I am going to work on Woodland Faerie. I have been working on her about once a week but since it is backstitching (there is a ton of it, too!) it really doesn't look too different.
I want to thank everyone for all the wonderful comments on my Halloween box. I bought the box from Hobby Lobby and simply covered it with fabric, glue, ribbon, and my stitched piece. The bad thing is that it's already empty of chocolate...lol!

What a cute shirt! Great job Dawn :) I have the info you sent me to make the gaucho pants, but haven’t tried them yet :) I am scared to try to make clothes for some reason! Eek!

Backstitching is a pain, but worth it, keep on going. I love your Woodland Fairy project.

I'm very impressed by people who know they're way round a sewing machine and can dressmake! I can just about sew a straight line with mine.........almost, lol.
