Fort Mc Murray, ...
I made this for a friend of mine, or more specifically for her oldest daughter, who was turning two at the time. I had some leftover fabric from a botched costume attempt so I decided I might as well make something out of it, so with a Kwik Sew pattern I made this little summer dress out of crushed-green velvet instead of lightweight cotton like it called for. The flower in the middle was made out of some black-gold lace I had lying around, and I added the ribbon as well. This was made in Feb. 2013.
I normally don’t post pictures of things that I’ve gifted to other people, but this is a notable exception because this was the last major sewing project that I sewed entirely by hand. The very next week my parents surprised me by taking me out to buy a serger for an early birthday present. :D
