What do you know - another dress!

I have a dress to share with you again.  What a surprice - right?!  
This one I actually made three of, but I can only show you one of them as the other two were christmas presents.

The dress is the Maggie Mae from Shwin Designs.

Conquering the fear of the invisible zipper!

I've had this pattern since last June, but never got up the nerve to sew it.  First of, this dress has an invisible zipper, which I have been terrified of doing after a total failure on a pair of pants for Anita.  Luckily she is such a flagpole that I was able to skip it and just do an elastic waist on those pants. Second, I have been waiting for the perfect combo of fabrics for this amazing dress.  
And third, the invisible zipper thing.

At last the stars aligned, I had the perfect fabrics and decided I just had to conquer that fear!

The pattern is the Louisa Dress from Compagnie M.

A little late but - Happy New Year to you all!

I hope you all had a great holiday with your loved ones!  We sure did!  After WAY too much eating and not exercising at all over the holidays, I am trying to get into jogging again and so far it is going quite well.  Just hope I'll be able to keep it up.

I have been sewing some lately and my head is full of ideas on what I want to make.  
I made christmas presents for my incredibly cute nieces and I made Anita a christmas dress but I never got around to make a shirt and a tie for Viktor as I had planed.  Since the holidays I have made to more dresses for Anita and a T-shirt for Viktor and next up are some pants to go along with it.

I thought I'd start by sharing Anitas Christmas dress.
