WIPs With Friends

I have ventured into doing some garment making of late. 
 I have decided to try making a dress for an expected little girl. 

 I have a shower in a few weeks and since the grandma has already made EVERYTHING that baby will need, I decided to make a few dresses. 

 I found a great pattern on ETSY. 
 It's called the Hula Hoop Dress.  
If you want to make one too you can buy the pattern right here.

My dress making skills are a little rusty, but I am going to try.  
The buttonhole will be the most difficult as 
I have never made these in all the time I have owned my Bernina! 
 Can you believe that??  
I am making a practice dress first. 
 I got it all cut out last night. 
Of course I had supervision, although she was laying down on the job!

 Peachy Pearl Bracelets for the skirt.

Pairs perfectly with some Fig Tree fabric for the top. 
 I have big plans for making at least a couple of these if this one turns out.

Now it is time for you to share with us what you are working on.  Please link up.
  I am linking up with Let's Bee Social
