Before our relatives got here last week, I made a dress for our niece. She turned 8 on her trip here, and I wanted to make it extra special for her. And what makes you feel more special than a brand new dress?!
I had Falafel model it for me. It is a little big on her. She is my tiny 8 year old.
I did a fancy embroidered topstitching on the hem to mimic the heavy black topstitching I did on the sash.
I had yards of that gorgeous black and white heavier cotton fabric (from you-know-who) that I have been waiting to use. Paired with that dusty rose bed sheet, I am swooning.
My girl loved it, but it was just a tad too big.
Oh what to do? What to do?
Give it to the Birthday Girl, of course!
Isn’t she just beautiful?
And that dress fits her like it was made for her. Funny how that happens, huh?
That is one happy child!
What have YOU made today?
