The fabric bought for the fifth birthday dress last year (ahem, bad mum) has finally been transformed.
I had imagined a tunic-y A-line sleeveless dress with either a contrast hem or yoke and bought yardage accordingly. That was not on with the little miss. The dress pattern she did like required more fabric than I had, so a compromise was reached.
I can attest that I still hate ruffles (fiddly, nasty things). And sometimes home-made looks a little …home-made. But there are hearts hemming the purple layer.
She’s happy. I don’t feel guilty anymore. Happy fifth birthday W, ~60 weeks late.
Because it’s finally finished I am linking up with Crazy Mom Quilts!
Edited to add: the skirt has calmed down with a few wearings and washings, and I am much more pleased with it now.
