Whoopsy-Daisies Dress/Top

I made this little dress for my niece Kate's first birthday.

It fits more like a top - either she is growing too quickly or I'm too slow and have to add a few centimetres to all my future projects for the kids!

I have tried a few plackets before and searched high and low for the perfect tutorial but they all just end up leaving me more confused than ever - if anyone knows the link to an easy-to-follow placket tutorial please let me know!

The pink Incomparable flower buttons are the perfect colour match for the material.

I made a small error with the sleeves which I then folded in on themselves and created a bit of a bubble effect - I like how they turned out and next time I'll do that on purpose!

Big brother Luke had to feature in the photo shoot! Thanks Luke!

Don't forget about our buttons-for-tutorial exchange - we are taking ideas until Saturday and welcome any ideas you might have. We've already had a few creative comments and look forward to hearing more...if you missed it here is the link.



  1. She's adorable! Excellent job on the outfit, too!

  2. I love the little dress you made for your niece. It is so cute and looks so sweet on your neice. She is so adorable!

  3. Dire che siete favolosi è riduttivo!

    Stima e professionalità per il vostro lavoro, se poi la modella è la dolce nipotina...allora tutto è MAGNIFICO!

    Un forte abbraccio. NI

  4. I just stumbled over your blog! Its absolutely lovely and very inspiring! Would be really cool if we can follow each other. Please let me know xxx
