S4697

S4697 I believe is an OOP. I used the pattern before when I made the top & skirt. This time I came across the pattern and decided to make the dress out of a knit fabric that's been moved around in my stash for the past couple of years. This was super easy to sew. There is self fabric binding for the neckline and also the armholes. Gathered middle seam in the bust.
This past Saturday was my granddaughter's 5th birthday. My oldest daughter (in the blue print and who is her mother) said we could wear animal print which somehow was the color scheme. Anyway, here we are in various prints! I think she made her dress the night before. Next day, without any plans at all to dress in the same fabric, we both wore to church what we'd made last year. I think her dress is a Butterick pattern and my top is McCalls. Great minds think alike, LOL!

Coming up on my sewing agenda is to complete a few UFOs since I joined the challenge on Sew Much Talent to get as many done as possible by July 31st. I don't have a lot but enough to keep busy until then.
