i have been a bad blogger of late- apologies!
but i just want to show you a dress i made for bella, out of soft brown material with pink lining.
i'm pretty pleased since it's the first item of clothing i've made where i have completely made up the pattern myself, there's something very satisfying and liberating about designing your own pattern.
but i have to say, measuring your child before making a dress for her is a great idea and i wish i had done that instead of ending up with a skintight dress that i had completely undo in order to add side panels to make it fit!
here she is wearing it as she steals the lid of the laundry bin-cheeky monkey!
