Six Years Old...with the world at my (slippered) feet...

This is the dress I made for my niece for her 6th birthday.
It took me about 5 days and a pile of discarded fabric to finally figure out what I was doing with the shirring bit. Once I realised what was going wrong (obviously a little on the slow side), it really was a breeze as all the tutorials out there say it is.

Don't you just love the fun polka dot fabric. I used a plain green fabric for the shirred part and then edged it with some Incomparable teddy fabric...

And could not resist a plain green pocket with the matching teddy button...

Please excuse the funny poses and the humongous slippers - it is still winter in Cape Town after all...although it has been sunny and in the low 20's (that's Celsius!) for the past few days...bliss

Oh to be six years old again...
