S is a lovely young woman and is going to be a mother of twins in the next few months. She has been suffering very badly with morning sickness and needed cheering up.
|S loves pink, this packaging is very similar to the colour of her hair|
Doris is doing a pretty good job as a stand in -
it didn't occur to me but I should have added a cushion to
show how the dress will accommodate a growing bump!
|A close up of the print - S loves Hello Kitty!|
Apparently S loves the dress - when she's feeling more herself I'll get a photo of her wearing it and we'll see how closely the fabric matches her hair.
I made the biggest size included in my pattern, to accommodate the twins, but took it up at the shoulders and under the arms because it was too big in those areas. The belt helps with shape at the moment and can be left off as time goes along.
I must be feeling very selfless at the moment because I've also managed these this weekend ...
|For my 2 year old niece A - who has had her eye |
on the rabbit fabric since I brought it back from Japan
|And for my 2 year old niece C - with bias binding to match her shoes!|
|I managed to get both dresses out of a metre of fabric |
and made the bias binding out of some leftovers
|And another dress for the Dress A Girl Around The World parcel -|
I had enough to make a bigger size
|I've had this fabric in my stash for ages - cannot remember where it came from.|
I love the colours but they wouldn't suit me - this is a much better use of the piece
I think that's it for July - I'm not going to get anything else made this week.
I'm going to put the Lisette pattern away for a bit and find something else to make in August - I'm off to Goldhawk Road tomorrow with my brother Qui Gon Jinn (he has the best beard - it totally makes sense in my family). We need to find fabric for the vintage dressing gown he's asked me to make. I am so excited, I've never been there before, the stuff of sewing blogger legend!
