It’s been really hot around here!
Yet, my kid’s love affair with baking is far from ending!
Especially in those days when it’s almost impossible to be in the kitchen – or near the oven, for that matter, and baking can’t become a “painful” activity – yet, my “little chefs” still manage to keep their motivation high!
The only thing they dislike is waiting for the muffins to come out of the oven – of course!
Did you remember how I mentioned that this dress was a bit too babyish for my girl?
Of course, I needed to have a plan B (dress).
Because the selected pattern was rather easy and quick to put together, I managed to sew another one just the night before the christening (I skipped the sleeves, made a small alteration to the sash and a “minor mistake” when making the back buttonholes):
This red and navy plaid version (from Fabric Finders here and white pique from a local shop) also makes a classic look (my favorites), yet the dress is “simple” enough to be worn afterwards almost everywhere.
She did wore by the end of the party – after the initial blue toile dress was literally “mud-covered” from too much playing (yes, I know, making a white dress for a toddler, when you know there will be lots of sand and dirt involved. Seriously, what was I thinking ?!)
I apologize for the lack of ironing on the above pictures (these were taken after we got home from the party and a very “quick ironing”).
I’ll try to update this post with some model pictures (soon).
