What I've been busy with ...
It's not perfect by any means, but it will do.
I hand pieced it ... I set out with the idea to hand sew the entire quilt - all the blocks, the triangles, the binding, the quilting ... I will say this, I am a painstakingly slow hand sewer. I may have to rethink this decision! LOL
The top, with the collar, and the sleeve ruffle and the sleeve .... this top was pretty tedious truth be told. And, although you can't see it, the dress bottom is attached to the top - kind of at armpit height and it was all gathered - I think I spent about 70% of the sewing of the dress and pinafore just on the top half of the dress.
