I am so happy I finished this dress!  Grin
Usually I start something, my machine stuffs up or I get impatient, put it down and it ends up in the mountain of half finished projects.....
But not this time!  Cheesy
I found the pattern at an op shop for 5c and fell in love. I just knew I had to use my last bits of mushroom fabric for it.
I used a crisp white cotton drill and the mushroom fabric is a thick quilting cotton.



I even found a perfect coloured zipper to match!





So what do you think?
I initially wanted to make this for my daughter but since it is a size 4 (and looks rather large for that!) it will take a very long time for her to grow into.....So I'll be giving it away on my blog (link in signature) in the next week.
Meanwhile I plan to copy and alter the pattern to fit my girl and whip up a few for when it finally heats up down here!
