This is the fabric combination I have for K's Jump Rope Dress, View B. The main dress is red corduroy with the gingham being used for the inside placket and for the trim at the pocket openings. I didn't get a chance to measure the sleeve length for her before cutting the dress out and sure enough, they are not going to be long enough. Adding fabric to the sleeve edges is an easy fix but my dilemma is which fabric should I use. Keep in mind that she's 11 years old.
Stick to the solid red or use the gingham?
I'm really hoping to finish all 3 dresses today. There should be plenty of sewing time and for once, there's no football or volleyball practices tonight to rush off too. BK's dress is the closest to being finished so I tried it on her this morning...
Not a morning person!:-)
ETA: I waited until K came home and asked her which she preferred....RED!
