Say What?

Here is the jumper with it's new longer straps. See how the red is on the back of the strap now? Hopefully it will fit her better (and that I didn't make it so long that the straps fall down). I kept some extra length on the straps tucked away inside the dress so all I have to do is seam rip two little inches and pull out a bit more strap if it isn't enough (or I want those inches this winter). I think it turned out okay.

I'm planning on hanging it on a hanger on her dresser this evening, so in the am she'll be sure to ask to wear it. That way if it needs adjusting I can do it before school starts.

Glad the dress turned out, but you have to watch your math. I know from experience since somehow on a recent quilt I ended up with rectangles instead of squaresbecause I just flat cut off too much fabric from the rows.

Awe, that is cute. Hopefully it fits her for awhile. Great thinking on making them longer just by doing a bit of unsewing!

So very cute! I love it! My MIL recently took in pants for my two mini girls. LOL They're both taller than they are wide, so everything just falls off. LOL
