A pretty dress for a pretty girl ...


After a few days of sunshine and heat I decided that baby  needed a new sundress.
The ones in the shops were either too expensive or looked as though they wouldn't withstand more than a couple of washes - so I thought I would have a go at making one ...


There are so many free patterns out there in cyber space, but I settled for this one found here
I loved the shape, style and the pattern seemed easy so I set to work.

The pattern is for a teeny tiny dress made for a premature baby but I found it quite easy to adapt the pattern and upscale it. I've since worked out the dress can be made to be completely reversible ... 
watch this space for more dresses.

It only took me a couple of hours to make, one evening, she would have worn it the next day ... but it rained!!
All we need now is some sun!!

I think baba likes it xx

That pattern is so versatile! I made similar dresses like that for my daughter - cotton and worn with t-shirts or nothing underneath in the summer, and needlecord with jumpers in the winter. Ideal!
