Sew Busy

Dress with godets.

The other day Sadie said to me "Mom, I'm one now. I'd like you make me something hip, something edgy. Something with...say...animal print".

Okay, maybe I've just been watching Project Runway again.

This is the first time I used godets. They turned out cute, although if I did it over again I would of started them higher up. Of course, it won't really fit her until next year.

    It's a gorgeous dress, Amie, & the colours really suit Sadie. And if ever possible (!!!) I would take you up on that swap you mentioned in your comment on my blog... I would so love to be sewed for again...My mother sewed all our clothes and up until a couple of years ago, she was still making my sister and I pj shorts! She's not up to it much these days, AND the skill was never passed on... And my dream job would be to work on creating personal albums for families... We're just a little too far away from each other... Shame...

    Amie, I just love all of Sadie's recent outfits!! You have done a great job. My Sadie is 15 months but wearing 9 mo. clothes. Everything is big on her too :( You've inspired me to get busy!

    This one is cute too! I think your godets look good but the probably would have been good longer too. I like how it gives the bottom of the dress just a little flair. :)

    I agree with the others.... great color choices! :) I had never heard of godets before reading this post. (would they be about the same as gores??) Thanks for sharing.

    A godet is when you insert a triangle into a seam or slash to add flare. They add the same sort of flare as a gore.
