Back in September I made this little frock for MissE from a vintage pattern and some Spotlight 100% cotton in my stash.
She wore it to my 40th birthday garden party but I did not manage to photograph it properly or blog about it until now. I piped the yoke in some handmade denim piping (which was a pill but turned out to be a nice detail), underlined the dress with cotton batiste, and made some covered buttons for the sleeves. It is a cool, sweet dress which is different from what is currently available at the shops yet still appropriate for a teen girl. The sixties style certainly seems to suit her!
Thanks for reading and until next time…chat quietly amongst yourselves!
