More geranium dresses and a GIVEAWAY!February 04, 2013
Here is geranium dress number 2 (pattern details and dress number 1 here) - in a cotton lawn for Juliette. My sister began this one for her six year old daughter, but something went wrong with her sizing and she ended up with a half finished bodice that was way too small. So lucky Juliette scored.
This is the gathered skirt version and I did the little V notch on the neckline. Fabric from Spotlight. It is very light and floaty.
Dress number 3 is made from some hot pink cotton that has been sitting in my cupboard for a couple of years. My friend Inala gave me a bag of fabrics that she thought I might find a use for. I probably wouldn't choose a pink this bright but Isabella loves it and I think it will be a good kinder dress.
I did the flutter sleeve on this dress and added cream ric rac on bodice, pocket trims and hemline.
I had to also add this beautiful photo of Issie in our lovely next door neighbours' garden...
And just in case you were wondering how our gorgeous little Emily is doing, here she is aged 11 months. She is such a darling and I feel like I am neglecting her a bit here on the blog since she is mostly in pants and comfy clothes as she is crawling all over the place. She also wears a lot of the girls' hand me downs, but I promise to make her something special for her birthday!
And now for my little GIVEAWAY...
Since I had so much fun renovating the girls' dollhouse, and making all the tiny bits and pieces, I decided to share some of the little treasures that I have made or collected. Perhaps they will begin your dollhouse collection or add to one you already have?
Both collections include a miniature pom pom garland, three coat hangers, two pencils with notebook, wooden doll, perfume, suede purse and wooden love heart.
