Gingham Double-sided Gauze Dress

I don’t have any daughters but after this sweet girl was born I was given a goddaughter which is probably the next best thing.  And let’s be honest – it’s much more fun to sew for girls! This dress is from a Cotton Friend mook (magazine book) made from double-sided gingham gauze.  The gingham on one side is smaller than the gingham on the other.  I love this fabric so much.  It’s deliciously soft and thicker than you’d think.  I got it in a Japanese fabric shop in Taipei.

I finished off the raw edges rather than fold the seams because they felt too bulky that way.  Plus the pattern pieces didn’t seem big enough to lose the seam allowance.  The instructions were in Japanese so who knows – maybe the seam allowance wasn’t included.

I loved this project.  I sewed it deep into the night when I was jetlagging.  I think I finished it before I went to sleep at 5am.  We’ve been back from Taipei for a couple of weeks now and I think I’m finally back on schedule.  It’s good to be home.

An apple a day keeps the doctor away, right? Well, crafting is my apple. It’s what I do to maintain my sanity while taking care of my family. I homeschool my three boys, ages 14, 15, and 16), am a quilter, a bagaholic, and pattern designer.  Oh – and I also like taking pictures.
