We live in an 1880s farmhouse. Fabulous to look at, but it's rather cold. The kitchen, in particular, has no insulation under it. Just dirt. And it's freezing down there, literally. I always have something on my feet during the winter in this house and I also frequently wear wool to keep me warm. Although sweet girl never seems cold, I wanted to make her some warmer dresses out of wool. But you know how expensive wool is at the fabric store? Expensive.
And with all these repurposed items, I found myself with a dress.
For me? She couldn't believe it!
I used a McCallsl pattern that I bought for a whopping quarter at a thrift shop for the bodice. And then I sort of made the bottom of the dress above fit the bodice.
I put my hand on her belly after she was wearing it for a couple hours...toasty warm!
Now I've completely caught the wool dress making bug. I promise you, there will surely be another soon. It's...umm...already in the works. You see, I told you I caught the wool dress making bug.
