Super cute dress!

It is better to have crafted and failed then never to have crafted at all.
Yes, I am stalking the Toys and Playthings board. Thanks for noticing!
I'm cheating on Craftster with Pinterest. It's ok though. There's overlap.

Thanks everyone for saying such nice things about my dress.  Imagine my surprise when I looked at the featured projects today to see if there is any great stuff I may have missed and saw the dress there.   Grin

I admit it: I totally looked to see if it was symmetrical. I had to, after you told me not to! And I totally couldn't tell.
Lovely job, and that child is amazingly cute!

I'm looking for Simplicity 6340 (the 1970's sailor dress). PM me if you've got a copy to swop or sell! Cheesy

ow. ow. ow.  my ovaries.. they ache.. they ache for a sweet little girl so i can make her gorgeous little things like that.  I have 2 little boys.  Smiley

I love the Pumpkin Patch but I agree with the previous that I love your version more.  It's more shift-dress looking.  Super cute. 

My mother-in law and sister-in-law live in Christchurch and when we visit I love to hit up PP for their seasonal clearance since our seasons are flipped. Smiley

I think your dress looks better than the one from the store. That's really beautifully done. You're daughter is adorable too.

Stop being so damned positive. Staring at the sun only blinds some one. By only looking at the positive, you miss an entire beautiful world of shadows and colors. Don't be overly negative, be realistic. The world is so much more complex and beautiful that way.

You did great! Hey I am totally anal about my stitching and from what I can see, you rocked it! I don't see any problems at all. Smiley

As to wasting fabric, don't forget about getting freebie or thrifted clothing super cheap and using it for making a new garment. A woman's denim dress or longish skirt, a pair of jeans from a very large man or two pairs of jeans of the same manufacturer is more than enough fabric to make an outfit (or two) for our little ones!

Thanks, I am all about re-using fabric, and have previously made the little one a pair of jeans from the good parts of my worn out jeans. 

I love the one you made more than the store-bought. It's adorable!!!!


Thankyou   Smiley
