|And no, we will never dress as triplets again.|
I finished Vogue 8593 and two doggie onesies and I am beat! (I figured out what to do with the fabric scraps...silly dog PJs!) I had a harder time with the dog clothes than the dress...that's how easy the dress was. I did have some difficulty getting the facing to lay down properly.
I had to cut everything out in single layer to match up the stripes properly. I also used tailor tacks to mark all of those small and large circles.
|I use washers from the hardware store as pattern weights!|
|All of my tailor tacks. I used a single thread to save me from constantly reloading the needle.|
To make sure the sleeves and the 2 back pieces were identical, I cut out one piece and laid it out on top of the fabric in the exact same position to ensure the stripes lined up.
|Can you see the sleeve outline on top of the uncut fabric?|
Here are more pictures of me in the dress:

And now the puppies:
|This one is my favorite!|
Thanks for the suggestions of what to do with the scraps. I cut up a the fabric for the dog onesies before any suggestions were made. Oh well. I still might have enough for a scarf.
