I made this dress and it was alittle to small(figured out I'm hippier than that ,lol). so I added panels to the sides of it and I think it came out well.
So, all my Dresses are made now for awhile. My next project to to remake seat covers for some fold-up wood chairs we have but that's next month in May.
The other thing I did was finally pick out a name. It's Claremonda de Cly ( sounds like Sea). This way I can still be called C, so I answer everyone lol.

I used a cardboard pattern I traced out to the size of the basket top. Then I used sheets of foam cut to the size of the size and bottom of the inside of the basket, I covered them in cloth and sewed then shut. And Lined the basket with thenm so nothing breaks inside. Then I used cardboard, batting and cloth to do the top, I sewed it the pillowcase way and then sewed both side to a strip in the middle so it opens from both sides. I put matching ribbon on both sides of the middle strip so that it ties around the handles and if something happens to it, I can take it off and make a new one.

Then since he had the legs off of it he sanded them down and then painted strips on them.
Then since we had left over cloth he did my rocking chair to match. Doesn't it look nice now?
I still want to make a needlepoint cover for them but right now my hands won't do needlepoint so I have a wonderful Hubby who does nice things like this for me.
