But Little Miss is now 3 and loves new clothes. So I thought I’d try my hand at it again. I even tried sleeves this go around! Okay so it’s still a very basic dress but I’m happy!
And we have success! Little-Miss-Lulu-who-picks-her-own-clothes put the dress on and refuses to take it off. Victory!
Look at those pigtails.They usually curl up into the cutest little ringlets. I’m going to be sad when that stops happening. She’s getting too big too fast.
The pattern is a freebie with a step-by-step photo tutorial from Pretty Prudent. I did come a little unstuck with the ruffles but I managed to make them work.
Even better? The fabric was in the clearance section of Spotlight. $4.99 for 1 metre and that was plenty to make this little dress. I couldn’t resist that sweet cherry blossom print. Miss 3 couldn’t resist the fact that it’s pink.
Also I must admit I rather enjoyed a fairly quick project – with this taking than less than two hours. We’re currently on house arrest with my son being rather contagious with a bout of rubella (German measles). Hoping that as he is fully immunised it’ll be a mild dose, but in the meantime we’re stuck at home for the next week to prevent spreading it. More sewing time for me?! I wish!
