A Mini Dress/Me Made May Days 4 and 5
No, I didn't make an extremely short dress for myself but a dress for a tiny little person. The intended recipient of this new dress is my niece who will turn two years old tomorrow. The fabric I chose is a lovely soft cotton stretch velvet. Because I have used the pattern before with great results, the pattern I used was Burda 3179. The last time I used the pattern was for this dress.......
Yes, this is Courteney, aged about 4 years old wearing a Pumpkin Patch knock off, complete with matching headband. Father Christmas in the photo was actually her grandfather, who moonlighted at the local mall, a fact she was unaware of at the time.
I made a size 18mths for my neice. It is a lovely roomy dress, perfect for an active toddler and because it is nearly winter also perfect for accomodating extra layers of clothing.
Today, I cheated a little by wearing rtw black jeans and another Sewaholic item, this time a Sewaholic Renfrew for an uninspiring but satisfying day of housework and a trip to Bunnings.
