Hello !!!!

I wanted to share the last two things I sewn :

first, the dress i made for my daughter. I choose the size 4 years since she's quite tall (3yo) for her age but it's very wide and so short !!! it's OK, but i think she will wear it next year whit a pant under it.
fabric : freshcut design by Heather Bailey (free spirit fabric)
pattern : don't remember... i have to check


And i wanted to sew a slipcover for the crib of my son, so i did it and i made a pyjama with the leftover (totally improvise using a little pants he had as a pattern). I add a appliqué on a simple tee(first time using freezer paper : it's so great !)
fabric : Follow Your Imagination / free spirit fabrics

thanks for looking

Thanks for the link, I've never heard of freezer paper for applique before!  I'm far too lazy, when I do appliques I use heat n bond to fuse to the fabric then do a zigzag stitch up to or over the edge so I don't have to turn anything under!  Your's looks very neat though...

I'm interested in personal swaps -- I love bracelets & necklaces and I don't know how to make them.

Both are awesome and very professional-looking!

If I may offer a suggestion, could you put a sash around the waist to cinch it in to fit her waist?

My DD is tall and thin, so usually if I make her a dress in a size 5, its too short in width but a size 6 is too wide. The sash around her waist is quick, easy and works!
