I had a look on the internet for a pattern to use and found LOTS of adorable dresses.
I decided on this dress
|Granny yoke baby dress|
My eldest son went for his licence on Monday morning so I took along my granny squares finished of the last of them (did I say that I started this dress Sunday afternoon?) and sewed in the ends while I waited and prayed that he would pass (YES he did :))
The skirt took longer than I thought but it was great to do while watching Agatha Christie's Poirot, I love David Suchet as Poirot. By Friday evening I was ready to put it all together. So less than a week after starting here it is
I had a little chuckle when I made this dress as I used the same pattern that I used for my sons shirts years ago. It is from the Kwik-Sew's "Sewing for baby" book.
I wanted to give it to my niece before Sunday so that her daughter could wear it to church if she wanted what I didn't realise was that it was Ebony's birthday on Saturday so it was perfect timing.
On Sunday after the morning service the twins come up to show me the girls in their dresses. They were both very cute. Alycia loves here dress and had to give me lots of hugs. There is just one problem and that is that the neck slips down, but I think this can be fixed by maybe tying/buttoning the top of the neck together like this
Not sure what I'm going to do now but I will need to organise a project as I think I may be spending a bit of time sitting quiet as my Asthma is playing up with all the cold and very damp weather we are having at the moment.
Till next time
