Party dress

Lots of twirling and whirling....
..and a bottom button not done up (there are actually three of them). Ho hum.... and possibly the last photo opportunity for the dress...

A big family reunion co-incided with her birthday celebration.... She had a great day.

And now the dress is a crumpled sunscreen-cake-olive-oil-and-dust covered blob in the washing basket.

The pattern is a variation on a theme I'm working on at the moment..... the fabric is some Donna Dewberry bargain fabric from Quilt Home.

Happy birthday, my little petal. xxx

It's very pretty, it looks like the birthday girl approves too. It sounds like it got lots of "wear" as do many of my kids clothes.

Darling dress! I've been doing a lot of sewing for my 5-year-old granddaughter, and she is a moving target to try to photograph, so most of the garment pictures are taken on the table in my studio.

So pretty. This makes me nostalgic for the days when Lily was a little girly girl...sigh.
