This one has owls and squirrels and little birdies. I thought the owl buttons were a perfect match.
My daughter wants to be sure her daughter is exposed to toys and prints that are stereo-typed as being for boys. I honored that with this airplane print but I did put lace on the sleeves. The aqua and other blues in this print will go great with my granddaughter's big blue eyes.
My, but my clothing sewing skills were rusty! It was awfully hard to switch back to the HUGE 5/8" seam allowance after all my quilting with a 1/4" seam allowance. Puffed sleeves? I was out of practice on gathering those after all my flat quilts. Notions? I have many boxes of bias tape, hem lace, buttons, rick rack, and elastic but finding them was a challenge and I think took just as much time as the sewing. I did find my tracing kit with wheel and coated colored wax paper for transferring pleat markings and casing line markings. The 59 cent price really dates it. I could not even find the cent sign on my computer keyboard.
I will be checking out other folk's projects tomorrow since it is so late here but at least tonight I wanted to link up to WIP Wednesday at http://www.freshlypieced.com/
