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…
