I was asked to make two dresses after last weeks experiment in making the baby girl dresses. The lady asked if I could make her one with the little orange birds on but I only had a small piece left and she needed size 18-24 months. I asked if would be ok if the back was different if she really wanted that design as I have looked and the store online where I got it no longer has any. She said yes as this was the pattern she liked, she also wanted another dress making form the little design I sent her last week with the wildlife creatures on it. I have been busy today making these up.
back ( yes it needs an iron!)
I had to incorporate a little of the bird fabric into the back as the panels that come over with the button holes show at the front. I also added a stripe across the back, there was just enough. I really did use every last bit of that fabric!
I have done buttons on these dresses at the shoulders as they are for a slightly older child but it would probably be ok to do the same on the smaller sizes. The lady who these dresses are for also asked if I could do some matching hair slides...
I have enjoyed making these today so I hope they are well received. My husband has been outside all day making something with some free decking boards that a colleague of his was going to throw out, it has turned out really well so I will share that tomorrow. Has anyone else been busy creating today?
