Birthday Dresses

They are almost done.  The bodices are machine-sewn, the skirts are hand-basted and waiting to be sewn by machine.  Just the hem left after that.  Phew!  

(The yellow is pretty bright in the picture - it's a bit darker and more muted in person.)

Some sewing

I am working on a couple dresses for miss Lucy.  One white, one yellow.  Same simple pattern.  Hoping to be done by her birthday in August.  She picked out the yellow fabric, and then also asked for a white dress to wear together with me when I wear my white dress.  How could I resist?

Today I got the bodices finished.

The white bodice.

The yellow bodice.  And a cat.
