I made this dress for a friend's baby shower that we went to in London yesterday. It is floaty and summery and just perfect for a winter back home but perhaps not suited to the chilly 'summer' weather we have been having here in the UK! (yes I'm having a weather gripe - it is warmer in South Africa in mid winter! Feeling a little homesick)
I smocked 3 rows with my machine and then added the contrasting fabric for the yoke.
This is our latest fabric for sale on Spoonflower.
It is a collection of cute kitties and a scattering of mice to add playfulness to the mix.
In fact, I used an Incomparable mouse button for the back closure...he is looking a little cheeky!
With some of the leftover scraps, I cut out individual cats and ironed them on using double sided interfacing...the ginger cat above is actually covering up a tiny snip mark where I was rather careless with the scissors...
but these two are purely decorative...
My friend is cat crazy and has a gorgeous fur ball so I think she will appreciate these cute bundles of furry joy.
How about you, do you prefer cats or dogs...or both?
