I didn't lose everything. And I now have a spiffy, glossy red external hard drive to prevent such a catastrophe.
I've been working on my very own little-gal dress pattern for a while now.
This is proto-type number one, version two. Version one was WAYYYY too big and had some piping sewn in between the bodice and skirt. The skirt was also a bit short, so I lengthened it with an extra ruffle. I still have a few tweaks to make, but overall pretty pleased!
