Going through my youngest's cupboard the other day, I realized that there was no handmade dresses within those racks. Something had to be done. So that afternoon I began and finished a little dress.
I think this dress, the Cupcake dress from the book Make It Perfect was just the right, quick and easy pattern for a done in one afternoon job. The pattern and instructions were very clear and easy to understand. The top half of this dress consists of an existing knit top, which is then joined to a tiered skirt. I once made something very similar for Julia many seasons ago just when I was starting out sewing.
I took a long sleeve top and teamed it with an assortment of vintage sheeting, the top floral layer being a gift from the lovely Amanda, and finished off with a little printed ribbon (of which I cannot remember where I purchased it from).
We popped a thermal on underneath this morning. Which made it almost warm enough for this morning in which the fog did not want to lift. I think it will be a perfect little dress for the cooler start of Spring.
It also seems to be quite suitable for wood carting, running away, and rock climbing. It never ceases to amaze me what busy little people toddlers can be.
Hat blogged here.
Hoping that your week has treated you all well so far.
