I wanted to make a little dress for an acquaintance of mine, who had a baby girl a few months ago. So I found this pattern in an Ottobre magazine - I needed size 74 cl.
The upper part of the dress is cut fairly high on the dress, and I kind of like that on this model. This and the fact that it's gathered in the middle, makes the dress a bit more copious.
I made the dress reversible - I'm rather fond of that at the moment - because I think it's smart and because it's warmer for a baby with two layers of fabric.
The fabric with the small flowers in different colors, is one whichI have used before. It's called Ginger Blossom. The bright one is a Japanese fabric and I simply love it - I have it in pale pink as well.
Making buttons on both sides is easy - I simply make sure that both pair of buttons have the same amount of holes.
Now I hope that the dress will bring joy....
My Baktus Scarf is also done. I only have to sew in the few ends of yarn, which the purple and pale blue stripes have left me with.
The scarf was easy-peasy to make, and I know that I will enjoy having the soft cotton yarn around my neck. Warm and cozy - just as I like it...
