Sew Chaotically! ~ Foxy Shirt Dress - Simplicity 8014

In early spring, during a Jo Ann's shopping adventure, Roo picked this foxy flannel for the shirt dress of her dreams!  White with grey line drawings of foxes and tiny v-shaped checks of aqua! (I swear they are in there but could not for the life of me get the camera to pick them up!!!)  Her dream dress was spawned from this Simplicity shirt dress previously made here and here.  It is a great pattern that goes together very well.  BUT!  It is rather short and straight, making it a little too short on sitting if left as is.  Sew!!  I lengthened it a couple of inches and gently flared the skirt out a bit starting at the natural waist.  I think it worked!!!

She loved it!!!!!

Gotta say (again!!!) - Scott Boy Stoked about my pattern matching throughout!!  I've had so much fun making things to fit Roo's body, style and life!!!

Perhaps she shouldn't wear this particular dress when she visits her hen house!!  Love my girl!  - les
