I saw the first dress on this post a few days ago http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=307473.0
and fell in love with it
so i just had to make my own..... not for me
for my little girl.
I used three different patterned cottons and as much as I like the dress its not as whooshy as I wanted it to be.... but even so my daughter loves it
and thats the best feeling in the world.
Ignore the face it had turned quite chilly by the time id managed to get hold of her and the camera so she was not impressed to be stood out in the cold.
anyway heres the front
bleary action shot
This is a self drafted pattern but as I've already said I had influence from another craftsters' brilliant dress.
It's the first time I've made an item of clothing for my daughter that has actually fitted her first time, without resizing
and its also the first time I've done shirring and gathering
. Isnt it amazing how someone elses creation can push you to learn something new.
We have had quite nice weather here in the uk the last week or so and if it lasts I will definitely be making more, but with a few alterations.
Thank you StacyCK xx
