Progress on Ofelia Dresses

These dresses have been super-easy to put together, so far, and it's a crying shame I'm not done with them yet. But, I've been busy... (summer!) I love how the instructions use French seams (which I like to do whether instructed to do or not, as I don't have a serger to make pretty seams). I like having the pattern instructions remind me every time: WRONG SIDES together! Quarter inch seam! Now RIGHT SIDES together! (Well, you get the picture). I'm hoping to show you some finished dresses in the very near future, but today we need to spend some quality time visiting all the playgrounds in our city for one of my freelance writing assignments with a local news website. Gosh, this is going to be a tough day... ;)
