In the last 2wks i have made The Whirlwind 8 new dresses!
I cant seem to stop!
I made the most recent 2 last night.
From KitchyCoos 'Smocky top' pattern
I love the pattern.....not so sure on my fabric choices! I started off thinking it all looked a bit 70's housewife! But now I'm thinking Retro Boho chic!......Anyway this time i went for the 3T-4T size and yes it is a bit big but she will definitely get 2 summers out of it. ( I think i will add some side ties to bring it in for now.)
'' I cant believe your taking my picture, when you haven't even bothered to brush my hair today mummy''
I love the yoke on this pattern and got it into my head that it would look lovely as a sleeveless dress. So a bit of fiddling and tweaking about later.... (Hope you don't mind the butchering of the sleeves Amanda!).....
I also took the smock in slightly and lengthened it.
Again I'm not 100% on the fabric combo, but i think i will add a big pocket to the side in the pink polka to bring it all together.
Notice the funny tan lines made by her sandals on the Whirlwinds feet! hee hee.
At the top of this post i said i had made 8 dresses....I just remembered a 9th!
I bought this 50p charity tee last week. Now I'm not normally one for slogans or writing on clothing, but lately The Whirlwind keeps telling me she is a princess!
So during yesterday afternoons nap.....A snip here and a bit of elastic there, and we have a cute little halter number.
I don't think Id put her in this to go out, but its a cute little piece for when we're lounging around our new apartment trying to keep cool in the 37 degree heat!
I really need to focus on sewing some other things now, but i cant promise there wont be more dresses!!!
