A dress and suit jacket i made for my daughter for the meetings in a size two. i really like how this turned out as she looks really cute in it, but its not too burdensome for her to wear, and it looks quite formal which is great.
its made out of a very stiff fabric, that i found hard to work with but the result was good especially for the jacket.
my friend randomly brought me home a vintage pattern from an op shop, and it was so cute i made it straight away from my fabric stash.
The dress is a very simple pattern that i made ages ago, before i knew how to use real patterns, i would just make my own.
