More Mini


After making the little pinny dress for Gypsy's charity drive, I thought it might be fun to actually follow the pattern properly to see how it turns out.

With the other one, I used view A which had a square neckline at the front (and I made it in size 4), so for this one, I decided to go with view B which has a round neckline and pockets (and I made a Size 2).

It's amazing how much more fiddly the armholes are on a Size 2!



I couldn't resist adding a bit of vintage ric rac trim from the huge stash that I received last week.

I'll be adding this one to the birthday / christmas pressie stash for later in the year.... I thinking ahead for once in my life!

Oh, cute! Love the ric rac. Oh, meant to say, if you need any help using up the bias binding, you know where I am!

Oh I just love your dresses! Both of them are stunning and the fabric choice just wonderful. If only that style looked good on me, sigh.

Cute!! That trim is awesome, too. :p

I have a pressie stash, too...the thing with having no little ones around anymore, you have no reason to be sewing the cute things much, so you make them for no reason, and stash them. :p
