Sometimes my "To Sew" and my "To Finish" piles are way too daunting. All the projects are big, all the projects have deadlines, all the projects have pressure. It makes sewing less enjoyable, less of a stress relief. That's when I normally take a break, and sew something fun and totally unnecessary. Cordelia normally benefits from these fits of unrest since projects for her take such a small amount of time, and materials.
Last night one of those moments resulted in a fuzzy monster dress.
She was more than delighted to wake up to this dress hanging on her door. Her giggle was enough to make me smile all day whenever I recalled the sound of it. She had picked this fabric out from Joann two or so months back, she begged for it, was really well behaved, and I had a coupon- which is how she earns her choices. It also reminded me of this cute Miss Monster my brother had recently bought his girlfriend. Actually when Cordelia grows out of this dress I might make her one that resembles that monster even more because I just love it!
The dress is drafted off of a t-shirt, and the hood taken from the Knight Hoodie pattern. The horns I made up as I went.
The claw pockets are my favorite part- I traced a pair of mittens and added claws to the end of them.
The whole thing took about an hour and a half, and it was time well spent. It was a great break from my lists, and to top it off Cordelia wore it the whole day! (normally she has two or three outfit changes each day)
P.S Thank you Shauna for taking more photos after my snow photos only yielded two usable ones!
