I managed to complete two of the three things I had on my list for the weekend.
Here are three versions of Simplicity 3510 - a Project Runway pattern for girls dresses with a range of variations.
Apologies for the very bad photos - I was struggling to find a good spot and unfortunately this one was too bright.
All three tops are the regular bodice with raglan sleeves. First up is Miss P's top. It's a size seven and is made from Heather Ross double gauze. Obviously I shortened it to be a top rather than a dress, I also gave the 'skirt' section of the top an a-line shape rather than the straight skirt given in the pattern. The only other thing I did was shorten the elastic for the neck ties. If you use the elastic guide provided then it will nearly be longer than the neckline casing. I cut off about 5cm and looking at the tops on the girls, I really need to cut off at least another 5cm as the neckline is sitting too far out.

Last weekend I had an extra long five day weekend, this time I'm back to the regular two days. My last post had a shot of a few things I wanted to work on and got started on bits of most of it - but as yet nothing is finished. I've also realised that I'm in desperate need of some new work clothes. So my plans for this weekend are:
- Finish the BurdaStyle Kasia skirt
- Finish the girls' tops
- Trace out a BWOF blouse and knit boat neck top
