The Highs and Lows of Fifth Grade

Day 2 of the Handmade School Year has us sewing up an awesome pattern by Astrid over at SIG Creations. She has several patterns that go up to the tween sizes and she stays very current with the in trends. This particular trend isn't MY favorite, BUT my daughter LOVES it - the high-low hemline. She picked out the fabrics again. The Peacock fabric is from Joanns quilting cotton, the aqua dots is one of Michael Millers Ta Dot, and the black and white polka dot is Timeless Treasures. This pattern is the Maysen and while I might not love the hemline, I did love this pattern. OH the options! You could have a hem ruffle or not, a strap or not, and oodles of sleeve lengths. For this one (and I might have made another one that you will see pop up later), we did use the hem ruffle option. On the strap, I had to widen it to meet our school's three inch sleeveless strap rule. I lengthened the sash as well. Overall, I was very pleased with the outcome. It has an elasticized waist for easy off and on (and since we had cross country team pictures after school, that made changing a lot easier than buttons today!). So here are the pics from day 2 and the SIG Creations Maysen high-low hemline dress:



You can pick up this awesome pattern and see other SIG creations at her Etsy site https://www.etsy.com/shop/scbyastrid?ref=l2-shop-info-name or you can join her facebook group at https://www.facebook.com/groups/342202325903267/.

Hope you had a great day today. We are settling in to our new back to school schedule, so hopefully we will get more accustomed to waking up at 6:30 again!

See you tomorrow!
