I’m already planning some Christmas sewing (among other things/projects I can’t wait to show you), yet there have also been some late fall sewing projects to keep me awake at night. Late fall kind of projects …
I’ve made my girl this dress a few weeks ago, but due to a couple of reasons, this dress almost didn’t made it to this blog.
The main reason was because … it doesn’t photograph well!
The floral print ( vayella) doesn’t really makes a good contrast with my walls and my “great outdoor” photos didn’t really work …
The second reason, is that I still need to make a matching blouse, but somehow I can’t really decide on a suitable color! (For now, my girl has been wearing this dress with her neck-ruffled tees and I’m kind of okay with it).
So, that’s why I have failed to post about this dress.
But to be honest, I really should blog about it, because the dress is precious and I do love it.
For the dress, I used the Colombine dress by Pappillon et Mandarine, minus the sleeves, a full-gathered skirt and lace insert ( You might have seen several similar versions here before. I do get obsessed with patterns very easily …).
I love this type of dress (sleeveless, gathered skirt and side-bows) for little girls and my daughter seems to love it as well.
Also, being “sleeveless” also means that she can wear this dress all-year (just add a blouse and carding when it gets cold).
Still, I wish this was a more photo-friendly project 🙂
