my creative space

Oooh la la I finished a dress, well almost - just a little bit of hand stitching to do.

This is the first dress I've made for my girls, sorry it's taken so long Missy's! x

The shirt was my husbands, the pattern was adapted from one my Mum used to make dresses for me as a tiddler, the applique flower is from our girls day out at the V&A a few weeks back.

It is completely made with love and I feel a little piece of all of is in this dress.

These aren't colours I normally work with, I prefer stronger jewel like colours but I'm just using up what I have around the house.
I added the pink in to keep Missy Big happy 
"Mummy I just like pink - not blue"

Let's hope she approves. 

I cut out the fabric for little Missy's dress, again not colours I really like, I don't know why I bought this fabric,(I went shopping when first born was very young - clearly the hormones messed with my vision) it's a little sickly for my tastes, but it'll be fine for playing around at the allotment.

I can't wait to see them in these creations.
