Over a year ago, I bought a McCall's pattern to make Delilah a dress. M4815.
It was a simple dress with a cute little tie at the neck for detail.
I decided to use a checkered bias tape for the sleeves, and after sewing one on, didn't like it. So it has sat in my sewing room, unfinished for over a year!
I finally got around to finishing it before Delilah got too big for it. But used a solid bias tape at the neckline.
To me, it looks a bit home-made with the bias tape I used, rather than hand-made. Know what I mean? Friends who know I sew, look at Delilah's outfits, and ask if I made them, and they mean it as a compliment. With this dress, it looks obviously home-made, which isn't as much a compliment.
But when worn by my sweet girl, I like it much better! She makes this dress look gooood!
I sure do love my model.
