With not much else to do but stay inside because of this woolly weather, what is one to do? Sew, of course!
This cute little number was fairly simple to make. And I learnt how to make bias tape along the way too. Easy peasy!
The dress is made out of a light-weight denim and is trimmed with a pretty Australian flannel flower print.
The top of the dress is lined with the printed fabric; I covered my own buttons and made the tape trim for the bottom of the dress.
I love this dress because of its simplicity, and will most definitely be making more for 'Little B'. One thing I will do differently next time is move the button holes a wee bit higher (the top bit looks a little 'flappy' to me) and I might play with different pocket styles on the front.
All in all, I think it was a success.
After note: I forgot to mention that the pattern is unfortunately not one of my own, it is 'New Look 6576'.
