Phoebe Sew-along and Auction

sew-alongIt is time for another sew-along post! This month’s sew-along had a very special cause. Her name is Phoebe. She is 4 years old,  the same age as my own daughters. Phoebe is battling Leukemia and Create Kids Couture’s created a pattern named after her. The profits from the Phoebe pattern go to her family for her medical costs and care. Please take a minute and visit the link to the pattern to read more about her.

Starting today, CKC is holding an auction to raise more funds for Phoebe’s care! Some of the ladies in the sew-along donated their own creations made from the Phoebe pattern.

The auction is being held on Create Kids Couture’s Facebook page.

You can go directly to the auction photos here.

Please visit and bid on these beautiful one of a kind dresses and help out sweet little Phobe.

For those interested in buying the pattern and making one of your own, the dress is fun and very easy to make. As usual, CKC created another great pattern for beginners that can be completed pretty quickly. During the sew-along we did just a few steps each day.

First we made the straps.

Then we pieced together the skirt and added the ruffle.

I decided since the dress was for auction, I wanted a nicer way to finish the seams. I used french seams since I don’t own a serger. They were not all that difficult and I think they turned out nicely!

Then, we finished the bodice and added the straps.

Finally, we put them all together and finished up the dress.

I think the bow straps are so sweet.
