Description

I made this dress for my cousin’s daughter. She is one year old and she will wear it when she will be baptized.

I made the pattern myself and learned a lot on the way. I especially had a hard time sewing the ribbon on the dress, but in the end I figured how to do it. The blue “flower” turned out a little too heavy for this dress – I used cotton – but next time I know I should choose a lighter fabric.

I was very nervous in the beginning, because the satin and organza are so much more delicate and lighter fabrics, than the ones I worked with before, plus I had a very tight deadline. But in the end, I was very proud, that I could make it in time (though I skipped a night of sleeping), and I was very happy how it turned out.
It was just heartbreaking sending it away with the post right after…

      Thanks! Glad, you ask about the flower. It took me a few hours to figure out what I want, and how I can make it. I made like 3 different kind of flowers. It still doesn’t look like how I imagined, but it was fairly easy to make.

      I took a long fabric, I folded it lengthwise and baste stitched it, then I just simply gathered the fabric along the stitch and formed a flower. I made 3 blue and one purple flower and sewed them together. I hope it was clear enough. :)
