I finally fulfilled my promise to Juliana and made her a dress. I gave her the pattern envelope and asked her which one she wanted me to make. She pointed to the blue one and said she wanted that blue dress. Ok. I was surprised she didn't pick the pink one this time. She always wants anything pink, even if she doesn't know what it is.
Luckily, I happened to have some blue fabric. The pattern is Simplicity 5695, View E (but with different embellishments and an added sash.) When Juli first put on the dress to try it on, she immediately said "It's too big!" She was right. This fabric is stiffer than the pattern was intended for, so it just looked huge on her. I put on a sash, and now it's just right!
I could not get Juli to put down the camera while I took pictures. She's going to be a photographer someday.
So have you heard? The Chicago Blackhawks have made it to the Stanley Cup Finals for the first time since 1992! They haven't won since 1961. We have some ecstatic Chicago fans over here.
