9210 Completed

This one was quite difficult, for many reasons. It’s always difficult for me to grade a pattern more than 1-2 sizes. This one was tiny! It was also made on a sewing machine that I’m not used to working with. Oh, how I miss my Pfaff! The Babylock is really not up to handle delicate, thin fabric. I’ve also started wearing a brace for my wrist and learning to sew with it on has been interesting, to say the least. I think this came out just a touch too big and the neckline is a little too low. I’m going to have to baste it shut.

    It’s the tough things that are worth doing. And you look great in it.

  2. Lord you make me wish I had time to sew these days! The dress looks great. I looked at all your earlier posts. Thanks for posting the pattern numbers. If I live long enough to get both kids in school, I might look up the patterns and do some dresses myself!

    Thanks, Paul!
    Helen, these patterns are all out-of-print vintage patterns. There are tons of them on eBay. Having kids in school really makes a difference. My youngest went to kindergarten last year and it made a HUGE difference.
