Ever since she made the pink bear Juliet has been desperate to make it a dress, so today we had a little sewing lesson where she made the dress on my sewing machine. She has a little kids sewing machine but it is so fiddly and hard to use that we have only used it twice in almost 2 years. She was really excited to have a turn at using my machine, was very cautious with the pedal and listened very carefully to all of my instructions. It was heaps of fun for us both.
Here she is choosing some fabric.
Adding elastic to the casing at the top of the dress.
And proudly displaying her creation. (Oops, we hadn't brushed her hair yet )
I made this dress too, which she calls karate bear. Sewing the tiny little neckline was really tricky. Do people have special sewing machines for this?
