Soon it will be time for Virtual Camp
for the Hittygirls!
Julie Old Crow has designed a special fabric
just for Camp Piney Woods.
Although some campers may prefer t-shirts,
Jubilee preferred to wear a dress.
Can one Hitty dress be created out of an 8" X 8" piece of fabric?
After I ordered the 8 inch square,
I placed the patterns I use for Jubilee on an 8 inch square sheet of paper.
It looks like it will all fit, including the lining for the bodice pieces.
I trimmed the salvage edges, leaving the 8" X 8" square.
The width of the fabric is a little shorter than the skirt pattern, but looks like it will work.
I cut out the skirt piece.
I did not use the previous layout to cut the remaining patterns.
I cut each pattern piece individually, using the edges,
and keeping pieces close together.
This includes the liner on the front and back bodice pieces.
This is the fabric I had left after carefully cutting out the pieces I needed.
I will need to get another fabric for the pantalette,
but it looks like there was some room for pattern differences.
The pattern pieces I used are from the Little Mo Hitty Dress pattern
by Paulette Morrissey.
I used the skirt and the bodice pieces.
I used the long sleeve, which is a straight, ungathered sleeve,
and modified it to a short sleeve.
Now, to go get some thread to sew up Jubilee's camp dress!
