Don't fall over, but...

I have actually been sewing.

After wanting to try a pillow case dress for a few years now and then seeing a few of them around I thought I would have a go.


My first effort was way too narrow for Ellyse and has been lovingly passed on. My next effort was much better but still needs some tweaking under the arms. I love the colours.


This is the too small version



I also made Ellyse a top using the Miss Madeline dress pattern. I love this as a top and will be making more.


Stay tuned, it won't be as long between posts as I already have two little tops cut out and ready for sewing. Not sure I will get there tonight, but definitely tomorrow.

Both the dresses are very pretty but I really, really love the Miss Madeline dress. Can't wait to see more of what you sewed.

I really like the second one. I've never had pillowcases as pretty as the one you used in the pillowcase dress. Very pretty!

Just beautiful Andrea. I desperately wanna try the pillow case dress too. My old pillow cases are all brown though... :-| not really little girl fabric... Cant wait to see the next entry!

Andrea said...

Oh I should have mentioned that it was not a pillow case. I drew inspiration from Anna and Corrie with their dresses that are similar. They have it a lot more down pat than myself though.

Thanks for the comments.
