Well, I think this will be the last dress for a little while, as I have to really get serious about completing that challenge quilt by this time next month. No pressure.
I loved making this little dress (Size 2), although the stripe fabric did present some problems. I had originally lined up a moss green and pink paisley fabric for the skirt, but after constructing the top and putting the skirt underneath it, something didn't quite gel, so in desperation I cast an eye over the mini stash (the one sitting on the cutting table, not to be confused with the one flowing out of the built-in wardrobe) and found this pink piece which came from the same range. Ah ... a bingo moment.
To make it a little more festive, I decided to add a big sash bow.
A dear friend had given me some buttons which she had bought in a moment of frenzied madness and decided later she would never use. So these little heart-shaped buttons have found a new home - they were just perfect for the finishing touch.
I know the quilt has to be made, but a parcel of the most gorgeous fabric has arrived and I am anxiously awaiting two more parcels which are due this week. Oh, the temptation to lay the quilt aside is almost overwhelming, but it's time for will power to take over and push aside these delicious distractions and get cracking.
