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

That dress is so pretty and your daughter is gorgeous!

Pardon my ignorance, what did you do with the freezer paper?!

Freezer paper help you to sew your piece of fabric (by hand or machine)

I really don't like applique but it become easy with this method.

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...

That dress is so pretty...I've been really tempted to buy that fabric and I love the little dress you've made with it!

Do you need a cute purse to go with that outfit?

These are both so cute!

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!
