Yes, I know…BUT it is exactly the pink and grey of a grey kitten’s ear!. This easy-peasy dress is made from soft and downy stretchy material. The bodice is finely ribbed and the skirt is just like ballerina’s tights! I made the bodice by drawing around a close fitting T-shirt and the skirt is a double layer dirndl which is gathered to bursting point and then, if that weren’t enough, elasticated too! I zigzagged around the hemlines with embroidery thread to create a decorative (if I do say so myself!) rolled hem. I fixed a really long sash at the side seams which wraps around twice and, hopefully,creates a soft draped waistband….necessary to hide the mistakes I made by not being practiced enough with an over-locker!!
