Death warmed over. That is basically how I’ve felt that last few days. Not fun. I’ll tell you what is fun, though. Charisma – by Chez Moi. It is beautiful! One of my customer‘s brought this line of fabric to my attention. I fell in love!
I knew I needed to make something out of it – but what, oh what should I make? Well, something for Haley of course. 😉
I used the Sew Baby Easy Pieces Jumper as the pattern. Haley requested that it not have buttons at the straps – and it fits over her head just fine with the straps sewn in place, so I figured I’d leave them off for her. She has to wear leggings under it – so if I wanted it to be a true dress, I’d want to add another row of the 5 inch blocks to the bottom.
The pattern was very easy to read and follow. You use a part of a charm pack and a coordinating fabric for the center tier and straps. This picture is not a close up, but you should be very proud of me – I even top stitched in a matching thread. (Usually I’m too lazy to change it from white!) So there you go, another super fun project with Charm Packs! LOVE ‘EM!
