i don’t know what possessed me to make a dress our of flannel. maybe i was in a christmas fog… but it sure is comfortable.

next time i think i’d make the tie belt in back longer so i could wrap it round the front as well. i also screwed up the arms (AGAIN), so they came out a bit poofy at the shoulders. since i am a bit poofy, this worked out well…

Material Notes

kid’s cotton flannel

    I really like the shape of this dress. I like the sleeves and how the skirt flares out a little, it is very pretty and the fabric is nice too. Did you use a cotton flannel?

    Nice job. Looks dressy but actually you could take a nap while wearing it.

    I like the fabric and colour you used for your Celestina. Next to it, it fit you perfect. Great done.

    So do I, Lauriana! :-) It’s beautiful! And the flannel creates a nice shape. ;-)

    I recognise the silhouet of a Celestina everywhere ;) and I think yours looks pretty great with that tiny flower print.
