KCW, Days 5 & 6

Day 5: Slept early without sewing (again!).

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.

Ice Cream Dress

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.

Liberty Ice Cream back

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!
