This was my submission for the August challenge over at the Monthly Stitch. Though I can’t wear my cape for some months because it is still summer here in South Carolina, it was a lot of fun taking part in the challenge and I definitely will take part in future challenges. In fact September’s challenge is to make a dress using vintages patterns which will be a perfect time to use one of the patterns I got in the Patterns and Notions swap on the Sew Weekly Reunion site so as soon as I finish my Anna dress for the Sew Weekly Reunion challenge, I am going to start my vintage dress! Are you taking part in either of these challenges? I would love to see your makes!
