Ready for the Fourth
Now, with Zoe a little older, the ruffles were just a tad to young looking and her cousin Chloe now lives in a very hot climate which would make the pinafore outfit to warm.
So with some sewing talk with my friend Jerry, the outfits were changed to make them a little more 'big girl' looking and at the same time cool for hot weather.
I cut a 2-1/2"x4" piece from the navy. strips are two red 1 1/4"x5 1/2" and two strips 1 1/4"x 9". After I sewed the flag together I backed it with white broadcloth, sewed around three edges leaving the bottom open for turning. Because the bottom of the flag is attached to the skirt, I did not sew up the bottom. After I turned the flag and pressed it, I placed it on the bib of the dress. Quilted the stripes.
