But who can resist sewing for little girls?
First up, a Tea Party dress by Oliver+S
I used the very last of my Cloud 9 Maman print for the bodice.
Its all gone now.
For the skirt I used some pretty caramel coloured poplin from Spotters.
The lace was sent to me from my sweet friend Claire , she found it for me in Hong Kong.
How lucky am I?
I sewed the hem with lots of rows of stitching. Knock off from the Family Reunion dress
As usual I lined the skirt to give it a clean finish.
I can't wait to see it on Baby Charlotte.
My great-niece Amaya was turning one so I thought a PlayTime dress would be fun.
As she is quite a solid wee girl and the last two dresses I made didn't fit I made the size 2T tunic but to be worn as a dress.
I hope it fits.
If it doesn't her Mummy could always flog it on Ebay. The Tula Pink fabric the Twins chose is evidently quite rare
Who knew? (Thanks for the heads up Virginia, the other metre is going back into storage)
As the sleeves were quite long I sewed a deep hem at the cuff and folded them back.
I used a pink velvet ribbon at the waist and some lilac flower buttons.
If you would like to make your own little dress, I have a full tute here
I wish I had time to sew more presents.
Do you make many gifts?
