Rainbow Scrap Challenge: From Being in the Pink to Seeing Gray

The first full week of school is over. So far Drama Teen is surviving.  I'm sure the work loads will pick up, but I've been advised that senior year goes much more smoothly than junior year does.  So far, so good.  

It's been a hectic week, so there wasn't as much time for sewing as I would have liked.  But I did find enough time to finish up the second pink Vintage Dress in time for this week's Rainbow Scrap Challenge post.  


 Vintage Dresses by Charise Randell

I like this one.  It looks like a dress my sister had when we were in high school.  Here are both pink dresses.  



I finished the first pink dress last week.  It looks like it's almost red when photographed next to the second dress, but it really is pink.  These are going to fit in nicely with the rest of the dresses.  

I've got the patterns and fabrics picked out for the August blocks.  



The really light gray on the right may have to be replaced.  I haven't checked to see how well it shows up against the white background. These two will take longer than the pink dresses did, both patterns have more parts.  So I doubt I get caught up in September.  But at least I'm just one month behind, it could be worse.  

That's it for my rainbow scrap adventures for this week.  You can find more rainbow blocks and at Soscrappy.

  1. The little dresses are so darned cute, and your fabric choices have been perfect. I was thinking this morning that they remind me of the drawings on the covers of dress patterns.

  5. Your pink dresses are so adorable! I'm sure sewing with the grays will be a lot different, but I noticed that I like the calmness of the grays mixed in with the other brighter colors - they make a nice contrast. Have a happy senior year alongside your DT. I know it will fly by!

  6. Your dresses are so fun. They remind of dresses popular when I was a child. I love all the detail they have (especially obvious in the drawings). I really like the fabric in the dress on the right.

  9. Love your cute pink dresses, the small scale floral are perfect. I did my Sr yr same time I did my 1st yr of college (so did my daughter) - glutton for punishment.
