Ack! I mailed the Christmas dress!

It’s a record this year, finishing and mailing before Thanksgiving. I’m pretty pleased with it.

Yup, that’s a Hong Kong finish on every last piece, gathers be damned.

I did run out of the little print and finished the bottom edge with scraps of the corduroy. I think it’s ok — not too bulky.

In retrospect, I should have just made some regular bias tape, pinned it onto the inside edges and given it a good zig zag along the fold.

Next time. And with the little girl’s seal of approval, there will in fact be a next time, in a light cotton summery print.
