KCWC day two

after yesterdays poor start, i have more than made up for it today, as i had cut out the fabric for this pattern last night, the actual sewing took very little time & if it hadn't have been for the stopping & starting {due to small child requiring attention} i think i could have finished this within a couple of hours

the 'lollipop dress'

the lollipop dress

the pattern came from a book called 'homemade' which is a lovely book my sister gave me last year, the biggest problem was enlarging the pattern to the correct size {which i must have done as the fit of the dress is not way off}the instructions in the most were clear & easy to follow, the dress came together really well,

i'm very pleased with the finished dress, i think it also helps that i love this fabric {just picked up from a local C&H fabrics, sorry no idea what it is}it looks like lots of little lollipops to me

the straps & bodice lining is some heather bailey 'nicey jane' i picked up on sale from 'prints to polka dots' which worked really well with the other print, it looks ever so cute on too - i'll have to get a snap of little O wearing it

i would really love to make another one of these tomorrow {& trust me i'm sure there will be more} but i think i'm going to have to make a start on a mermaids tail!

  8. Can't believe you have achieved something already, on Day 2. I am beavering way and could well finish today but I have a feeling something else will get in the way. I've seen that fabric in my local shop, it's so pretty, and feels nice too! Love your lollipop dress, and I also love the fact it suits the wall so much (although I'm sure little O won't let it stay there for long!!) x
