With a winter landscape of mostly white and gray, working with some color in my sewing room has been refreshing. Although I tend to prefer muted tones and neutrals in my clothing, Little #6 does not. She wants color and sparkle. After choosing a few fabrics from my stash, we picked out ribbon that would add the perfect hint of glitz and glamour that Little #6 loves so much, but she couldn't stop at the ribbon. She wanted more, so out came the garish buttons (a few that had been left over from costume making). What fun it was to sort through those fancy buttons! Using one of my favorite patterns, the Geranium Dress, these two little dresses sewed up quite quickly, much to the excitement and pleasure of Little #6. Plans for more fancy dresses are in the making since Little #6 has a younger sister that loves dresses and glamour as much as her big sister does.
