messy dressy

when i was pregnant my bestie hannah gave me a book all about making children's clothes. to be honest, that was the reason i so desperately wanted a girl. you can't really make lovely pretty girly clothes for a little boy can you? (unless you're very mean!) so i promised myself that if i had a baby girl i would make clothes for her.

nearly one year after i had Bella, i finally got round to doing it!

here is my little dress! i got the rough pattern from the book but tweaked it a bit by making it generally scruffier (not on purpose!), adding little pockets etc.

look, it has lining and everything! la-di-da!!

and here's bella now-i had a tough job trying to get a photo where she wasn't lifting the dress up over her head!
