D's sun dress - it's finally finished.
This was to be my grandaughter's first homemade dress but she didn't manage to finish it before the end of last summer and so it was shelved until now. She asked if I could finish the dress for her in time for her birthday. How could I refuse.
She had picked a good pattern. Simplicity s2469 is also good value as it has several different patterns for boys and girls clothes
D had done most of the work already and luckily had chosen to lengthened the skirt length. Although she has shot up in height since last year she hasn't filled out much. All I had to do was serge smaller side seams, add the straps and a lining - and it was done.
D chose the pattern and fabric because she has a photo of her mum as a little girl in a blue broidery anglais party dress and wanted to make her own. She loves her new dress.
