Sew Thankful Tour

Want to know a secret? I've typically passed on November tours before this one. Why, you ask? With Thanksgiving as the notable November holiday, they always have themes of thankfulness. That's great, and I certainly have things I'm thankful for, but I'm terrible at writing about them. I'm worse at finding a way to tie it into sewing, or any other crafting.

Ellie saved me at the last minute by asking for a new dress for Thanksgiving. In past years I might have questioned it, but we're fortunate to have been able to travel this year to celebrate Thanksgiving with Patrick, and a new dress for Thanksgiving with Daddy's Boss seemed like a perfectly reasonable idea to me.

She loves twirly dresses, so my current go-to pattern for her is the Patterns for Pirates Me Hearties Dress. It's fast to make, comfy, and the circle skirt is just perfect for twirling. I bought the fabric for this after lunch, and in spite of taking time for a trip out to get ice cream and a break for dinner, the dress was finished by bed time. Originally she asked for turkeys, but JoAnn's was pretty much devoid of any turkey prints by the weekend before Thanksgiving. As a second choice, the feather print jersey is super soft, and twirls nicely.

This dress was a hit. She says it's super comfortable, and even wore it for one of the long days of driving on our way home. I'm so glad I could fulfill her request and make her happy.

Thanks for reading! Don't forget to check out more Sew Thankful posts from some great bloggers!
