KCWC Fall 2012: Day 4 & 5

KCWC Day 4 & 5

I worked on this tunic/dress longer than I wanted. My machine kept giving me lemons. My automatic buttonhole option stopped working and I had to figure out how to make buttonholes without it. They all came out wonky but the good thing is that buttons cover buttonholes perfectly.


Notice the sleeve detail. I love how it turned out.

This is a Burda 9503 pattern. I bought it from JoAnn's when K was born and forgot about it. I am glad I found it and decided to make it for this KCWC. It turned out very cute and it would look even cuter from the lighter fabric. I used shirting flannel (is there a thing like that?) for this dress so Alyssa can wear a dress during winter.


Ruffles are always a good touch, aren't they?

On to the day 6 & 7 of this KCWC. I am hoping to make a birthday dress for Emma. We have a lot going on tomorrow but hopefully on Sunday I can catch up.


  1. Oh, it's so cute! I love the sleeve detail too, and the ruffle and the buttons. You are ahead of me now, mojo problems notwithstanding (maybe you found it?) I've been working on the same dress for three days and I doubt I will finish it tonight.

    1. Masha, no mojo yet. I am making myself sew every day and nothing cooperates with me in my sewing room. It is taking me much longer to make something when i am not in the mood. I hope you finish your dress and I am sure it will look great!

  2. wow, look at you go. I love the sleeves, too!
