When I saw Sew McCool was doing a sew along for an Ottobre pattern, I knew I had to follow along, especially since it was one of the patterns I wanted to make anyways.
I made Design B, because I love bows and have way more woven fabrics than knits. I used a synthic fabric that I had leftovers from to try to use it up. It was such a pain to work with; slippery, but stiff and frays like crazy.
I just realized I didn't get a picture of the hem. There is a hem band that peeks out a quarter of an inch of pink gingham to give a faux piping look.
I learned my lesson and am now going to start tracing patterns based on Eleanor's waist size and just add length. She is so skinny and tall.
I also got a free swatch of silk from spoonflower so I turned it into a bow.
You can find the round up of the sew a long here.
