Early last spring I bought this green fabric while on vacation and as soon as I came home I cut out this dress. But then I forgot all about it until this week when I was going through my unfinished project bin.
Luckily the pattern I used (a 1965 Simplicity Pattern #5948) was a size 3 and will still work for Grace this spring. However when I started sewing it up I decided to change a few things—like the sleeves, tie, bias tape, etc.
I sewed it up in a hurry during my girls nap time and when Gracie woke up and tried on the dress I laughed and laughed. It TOTALLY reminded me of my Girl Scouting Days. (Did anyone else participate long enough to leave Brownie’s and go into Juniors with those green vests?) I don’t know, is it the colors? the tie?
There’s something there that just reminds me of the girl scouts.
Maybe we’ve just been eating too many Thin Mints around here and I’ve got the girl scouts on my brain.
