I decided to have another go at clothing making. I am still going to stick with making things for the Farm Baby as it is quicker and what is better than making my little girl look cute! I decided to go with making her a party dress for her birthday next month (I can't believe that it has been a whole year!) so I set out to find the perfect pattern. It was then that I happened upon this blog - http://thecottagehome.blogspot.com/ - and it has become a favourite. I found a great pattern here and decided to go for it!
I had picked up the spotty material when we were in town a couple of days ago, I discovered it in the fabric shops remenants bin for £3. It was perfect for the job.
I really enjoyed myself, so much so that I had to post my creation before it was quite finished - I haven't got the buttons for the back yet. But I am very pleased with it and am already looking at material to make a second one, more of a sundress style for everyday, with some nice bright flowery fabric!
So, take a look at the finished (ish) product. Apologies for the photos, I don't know how people make photos of clothes look so professional, mine just come out looking, well... flat! But you can get the idea!
There was some left over fabric so I sat and played around for a while and eventually came up with a Bow Headband to go with it! She's all set for her birthday now!!
If you are loving this and want to give it a go then check out the pattern HERE.
