Day 6: Another late night to make Miss S's new favourite dress, worn today. A pretty, pastel dream of a dress for our girlie girl.
Oliver + S Ice Cream Dress. Size 4 to fit well next summer. Great pattern which I have made once before here- that version was very well loved.
Liberty Tana Lawn for mid section- it took 40cm (of wide width, 135cm or so). From Gardams a few years ago; I think the print is Poppy and Daisy.
Pink gingham from The Fabric Store- beautiful shirting similar in feel to the Liberty. S loves this one- she has been taking this fabric from the stash and using it for dolls' picnics for some time.
Straightforward the second time around. After putting on the pockets, I said to my husband 'I've lost my mojo' (no response as he was asleep!), but I decided to do just a bit more, and then it seemed so close to finished, I just kept going. Soon (well at 3am), I had this pretty little dress!
I do love being able to go out as a family on the weekend and having one of the kids in something I just made the previous night.
I also love that she loves it as much as I do!
