In between going to weekend country festivals, I was able to get the "trial" sundress/jumper done for Ava. Of course, I don't really like to spend our time together in the sewing room, especially when the weather is as wonderful as it has been the past few days, but I wanted to be sure about pattern size so that I can make other garments for her without worrying that they will be too small.
Even with her here, the dress turned out a bit too big. But I think it is OK...if made into a winter fabric, there is plenty of room for a blouse or knit top underneath.
Ava added the leggings for a "touch of fashion". Ava loves her new sundress, so we did several poses outside for her to print out for her fashion scrapbook. :)
She goes home today. It has been a fun five days filled with lots of activity. And our adventure is not quite over yet...we plan to stop at the boardwalk in Galena on the way home to check out the Osprey platforms. Maybe we'll see some of those majestic birds!
