About a month ago,Erlisa asked me if I could make matching dresses for Eva and Adina to wear to a baby shower that we were all invited to attend. McCall's patterns had just added two adorable patterns, one for a dress and one for a jumper. Needless to say, I bought both of them and made the jumper pattern for Adina and used the dress pattern to make the matching dresses. I followed the dress pattern with a few exceptions. Instead of the flat contrast piece at the hemline, I made a ruffle to coordinate with the ruffle on the bodice. I made ties to pull in the dresses in the back rather than the grosgrain ribbon bows at the sides. The dresses were easy to make and I was pleased with the results. Everyone at the shower thought that the girls looked adorable.
