Something about a donkey that doesn’t hurts itself twice on the same stone (Dunglish expression), or in correct English a fox is not caught twice in the same snare. I sewed the Wendybird dress by Stitch Upon a Time* for our eldest for her first day at school. But something went wrong while cutting of the fabric. The first dress I sewed is the frog dress with the blue and yellow stripes. Well actually several things went wrong when cutting the skirt panel.
One week later I sewed another Wendybird dress, this time for our middle daughter. This time I paid attention to the width and height of the panel piece. Still I forgot, something about my pregnancy brain still not having recovered, to lengthen the pattern piece. Again I used a different size for the chest and the length. So again I had to add a contrasting piece of fabric to make the panel piece just as long as the other skirt pieces. In the end you cannot tell that I made the same mistake twice!
Fabric: Jack and Frog Friends by Lillestoff and the blue and yellow stripe fabric comes from my fabric store in Italy. The red bird fabric is also a Lillestoff fabric, which I bought a long time ago.
