:::Jiffy Dress:::

This little vintage pattern was begging to be made....just look at that back.....
So I made it for little Mia. I haven't sewn a pattern piece in a looong time.
Things are a little rusty, the shoulders are a little wide but passable...but I just think I may be finding my clothes sewing mojo again. I added my own embellishments......my favourite being the vintage flowers on the front that I adorned with, yes, yoyo's (ha) and the vintage button on the back.
There's something pretty satisfying about sewing for my girl.

Wow- lovely, lovely! The dress the girl and the embellishments are very special indeed. I too love to sew for my children. I need to figure out how to make more time for the sewing machine.
