I was in a bit of a hurry, dd tried on last years dresses yesterday. I was hoping that they might work as tunics this year, but her tubby belly was poking out, so I had to whip up some new ones.
This first was was my size tester with very cheap fabric. It's worked well, I've made a size 3 (dd is 20 months), I took about an inch off the width, but left the length. She's tall but scrawny. This will definitely see her through the summer.
I bought this fabric a while ago, I'd seen lots of similar dresses in this more traditional style. I have to admit, it wasn't until the very end that I fell in love with it. I would like to think of it as Belgian style children's clothing?!?
This is one of my favourite fabrics. I've had it for a couple of years and not done anything with it. I do however think it was made for a dress like this. I can't wait for the sun to come out so dd can start wearing it!
I feel I've perfected the method of the Geranium, now, do I have the confidence to cut into the Liberty fabric?
