I couldn't. She's too cute, and I was too excited about posting this.
Tonight was pilgrim night at Cubbies. To make this dress I used another of the 2xl turtlenecks and scrap fabric that I had. I cut off the sleeves, cut the shirt in half, and cut the top half down to size. I gathered the bottom half, and put the two halves back together, sewed on the collar, and sewed on the sleeves and cuffs (not necessarily in that order). This was my first time sewing on sleeves in like, 14 years (when I made an outfit with Mom once), and my very first time doing it without a pattern. Then of course, she needed a hat and an apron. I won't say it was easy, but it wasn't hard either. It was just fun. But the funnest part was when she tried it on last night and said, "Oh, I gonna be so pretty!" And I think she is the prettiest pilgrim I have ever seen!
