I finally finished this dress for my little girl. It took two nights of sewing, would have been much quicker if my machine wasn't being such a pain but I am just glad it is finally finished!
I picked up the pattern at an op shop for 10c and fell in love. I really love vintage patterns so much!
(I also got a heap for me and one or two more kids ones too-YIPPEEEE!)
So here is the dress:
Sorry for the night time pics, my little model is asleep and i am too impatient to wait until morning to get good photos! Will get her to model tomorrow for me
There are a few things I would have done differently now it is done.... I usually really like contrasting thread but the black on red on the sleeves kinda bugs me
But considering this is my first project finished from a pattern I'm pretty happy with myself.
(I usually just throw things together, get frustrated when it won't work and figure it out myself the hard way or give up in a fit of sewing machine induced rage!)
C&C Much appreciated!
Will post new pics on my blog tomorrow if anyone is interested, here's a post on this dress anyway:http://bloginessiness.blogspot.com/2010/05/little-polka-dot-dress.html
Aaaaaah! It's too big!
Well it is a size 2 and she is only 13 months old. She wears shop size 2s but apparently not vintage pattern size 2s! Silly me should have measured but wanted to just make it anyway, she'll grow into it eventually.
At least she had fun trying it on, she loved the swooshing of the skirt
