Fell Off The Wagon...

The Kids Clothes Week wagon that is :). I was feeling under the weather on Friday and barely left my sofa. And of course, that means Saturday was spent catching up... and spending time with family.

Here's where the Josephine dress is so far...

I've done all the fun stuff-- the ruffles and pin tucks  but I still have the sleeves, collar and finishing to go. I'm in love with how the ruffles contrast with the pin tucks texture-wise.

I'm a bit apprehensive about the buttons at the front. Because of the ruffles, the fabric is pretty thick under the button band. I'm thinking of using hook and eyes instead. Any opinions or suggestions?

We have a few more projects going on at home, so this little number is probably going to take a backseat for a while. Starting with picking up!
