Check it out - the dress worked!
Remember HERE I told you I had bought a pdf pattern for a Tiered Patchwork Twirler Dress from Sweet Shop? I had started the dress earlier this week and with a quiet house last night and no bunting to be sewn I decided to finished it off.
I am so excited that it all came together as I have never made an item of clothing before - I was surprised at just how simple it was and very grateful for the wonderful tips in the pattern. I'm thinking my 5 little nieces just might be getting one of these dresses each for Christmas!
As soon as Milla woke up she spotted the dress on my sewing table and said "What that??" before I knew it she had it on (with a long sleeved shirt underneath as it's rather cold here these days) and she was twirling around the backyard in no time at all!
With my current obsession with the Hipstamatic iPhone application this fun dress creates some pretty amazing photo opportunities too
I have to be honest and tell you I'm rather inspired after finishing this dress to buy some more patterns and make other styles - Look out!!
