Geneva,
Yes, measure around the chest. By the time the seam is sewn, it makes it a little smaller. With our iffy weather here. . .one day 80 degrees then next 65 degrees, the dress is large enough that she could wear a t-shirt under the dress on the cooler days. The fabric was sold by the inch.

Nancy, your knitting projects are so pretty. I really like your quilt too. I'm looking forward to seeing a close up of your quilting. You do such amazing work!

Terry, your post came at just the right time! My 6 and 4 yr old granddaughters are coming for a visit and I was looking for something easy to sew with them! Your little one is so cute! How did you decide how much fabric to buy for each dress? Shall I measure around their chest?

Thanks! geneva

Awesome news about Gibbs, Betty Jo! How special Lew was able to repair him on the spot so you weren't out having to come back through traffic to pick him up. Kudos to G Street!

Hi Terry, Gibbs got repaired on the spot at G Street by Lew, the tech magician they have there. He took it all apart, said it was completely out of timing everywhere and something was nearly off. He found a hard knot of tangled thread (don't know how that happened), took it all apart, put it back together all clean and oiled and perfectly fine and pronounced it still in good shape and that it should last some time. So here's my blog about what I'm going to do now: www.blog.bjfabricartist.com/2016/05/betty-jos-fabric-arts-the-adventure-continues/ I'm thinking I'm just a little bit crazy. LOL

Geneva and Betty Jo, thank you for the kind words about my blog. It was great to read others entries and comments. Thank you all for keeping us updated! Speaking of updates, Betty Jo, what is the word about Gibbs?

Nancy, I sure enjoyed your blog. The first part about motivation sure hit home with me as I've been struggling with that too!

I have a new blog post here for anyone who is interested. I've started piecing a new quilt top and am working on getting my mojo back.

Thanks!

Terry, your quilting and quilt look wonderful! Pushing and pulling a quilt through the small harp can be a pain, but when it's done, it's so nice.

Thanks for sharing your thoughts on how you get your quilts done!

Thanks Terry. Your work, as always, is wonderful and I love keeping up with it. As to Berninas, in this case I don't think this is a beta test machine. I know the 830 had a hard time in the beginning, and they should have used a heavier beta testing for it before releasing it, but by the time I bought mine..an 830 LE..they had fixed the majority of the problems. I have used mine nearly every day since I purchased it 4 and a half years ago, had it maintained only twice during that time, and it has worked wonderfully for me up until last week when it went kaput. The last three years, especially, I have run it hard and fast and long. I probably put as much sewing on it as I did in 15 or 20 years on my older machine if not more. My old Bernina 1230 has been around since I purchased it in 1990, when it was the top of the line. I sewed heavily on it most weekends (I was working and traveling a heavy schedule at that time), and some evenings and vacations, until I bought a 200E, at which time it became my backup machine. I have only had it maintained once (but I have kept it clean and oiled). It still runs well. I bought the B350 early in 2012, or maybe it was in December 2011, when I bought Gibbs for my then new full time retirement fabric arts career, because I needed a light machine to carry to classes and the like. It has never had really hard use, and I love the way it sews, but it is little. I really believe that Berninas are still the best, even though many people are frustrated with the more advanced pricey machines that are really computers with mechanics, which are almost certainly not as sturdy as a mostly mechanical machine. I do hope it is repairable to run another few years because I really use the functions of the 8 series Berninas. If they can repair it for a reasonable amount, I can go ahead and purchase a sit down longarm. Otherwise, I will have to figure out what the blinkety-blank I am going to do, because I have become kind of dependent on it.
