Just because we live at Camp for a month and a half every summer it doesn't mean Tillie has to give up on the cute outfits for that time. While she does wear a lot of garage sale clothes while we're there, I can't help but sew a few cute things for her.
I've been thinking about making her a dress using a Camp shirt since last fall. This spring I finally decided to go for it using Little Blue Boo's Sienna dress pattern. All I have left to do is the top-stitching around the neckline, but I decided to try it on Tillie first. Good thing I did, the neck hole is too small! I'm going to have to modify the back adding a keyhole button closure, but I haven't quite decided how I want to do it yet.
Of course, she needed another acorn applique tee this summer. I tried to whip this one up two weeks ago when we went to Camp for dinner. Yeah, not a good plan. As I was sewing it on, I realized I was sewing very badly so I decided to to take the stitches out and try again. After I took them all out, I discovered that the acorn was not centered at all, so I peeled the acorn off. That, of course, left a residue so I needed to enlarge the acorn so that it covered the marks left. This acorn is 115% bigger than the original. I intended to use one that was 127% bigger, but that was another mistake. I didn't sew this one very well either, but I kind of just wanted it to be done. It doesn't totally cover the residue, but it's not super-noticeable.
