|The Fab Four dressed for school|
Miss L's not that keen on school,so to maKe it a little more palatable to her,I offered to sew her some pretty uniforms.
I probably should have approached the school and queried whether the oliver+s Jumprope dress was suitable,but after observing what some of the children turn up in I decided to try and slip under the radar.
Although Miss L fits into the size 5,I decided to go with the standard size 8 with a big hem!
This means the dresses should fit her until she is ready to wear the twins dresses.
I was able to cut 5 dresses from the remaining fabric I had.
2 View A's and 3 View B's.
I used all the lovely details,hoping that in a single fabric they would not draw too much attention.
My one concession was the mother-of-pearl buttons instead of the plastic white ones that are usually used.
So far not so much as a dicky bird .... I have never been so delighted NOT to receive a compliment on my sewing!
