New Look 6720 in Echino Bonbon
I've been working on this little project in the background over the last few weeks now.
New Look 6720 in Umbrella Prints - Oasis - Wild Floating Grasses (beautiful fabric to work with)
A friend bought some beautiful fabrics from Earthgirl Fabrics and asked me to transform them into some little dresses for her daughters, and skirts for herself.
New Look 6720 in Melly and Me - Where The Wind Blows
I love how these little dresses turned out, especially the Size 4. Completely adorable!
As for the pattern - I think the way that the facing is attached to the bottom of the bodice is a little clumsy, and not easy to sew. There was a lot of unpicking and re-sewing to make it nice and neat.
Nicole M Design A-Line Skirt in Melly and Me - Where The Wind Blows - Blossom
After making my first a-line in thick denim, this one was an absolute joy to sew. It drapes beautifully in this quilting weight fabric.
This one is most definitely on my to do list to make for me.
Burda 8090 in Vintage Groove Polka Dot
Finally, I finished off with this Burda A-Line skirt. I've made this once before... a very long time ago.
The retro style of the fabric is perfect with the design of the skirt..... and Frances was very happy to finally be modelling skirts that fit!
PS - I've made myself a new header in illustrator. I'm still a newbie so don't be too harsh... but check it out!
