I made this little dress today in between preparations for our big move
back to the small island. Yes, we are taking the freezing big step of moving to London for the next 12 - 18 months. After our wonderful year in Oxford I was hoping thought that we would be headed home - or even to Zambia - one step closer to home...but that will have to wait for now...I must say I'm looking forward to unlimited theatre (unlimited opportunities - limited budget!), super speedy internet and of course, online window shopping!
I love the fabric combinations - this vibrant green dot works so well with our Incomparable teddies fabric range as an accent.
Shirring on the back...
This dress will
hopefully fit a 9-12 month old. And in fact, it may be a top - all depending. It's rather tricky without the intended recipient in front of me. Although I imagine that if she were in front of me, I would get no sewing done whatsoever which would make things even trickier!

I pleated the front and sewed down the pleats a little way.
Here's a shot using all the furniture I could round up in one go:
I had plans to make this about 10 days ago but it has taken me this long to cut the fabric - I get absolutely terrified at the thought of cutting it - am I alone in this?! Are there support groups out there? Anyway I finally took the plunge and am so pleased with the result that I'm furious that I didn't do this 10 days ago so that I could have made a few more in the interim!
One other thing I am really looking forward to...the build up to a cold
fingers crossed for white Christmas...exciting times ahead!
