Anyway, onto my sewing. I've been on a bit of a fabric buying spree from Sew Addictive Fabrics on Facebook. It's all so gorgeous I can't help myself!
(Look she's walking! Although walking has gone out the window since she's been sick so hopefully she'll continue once she's better.)
This another round neck dress but I made it with ties instead of buttons and a larger A-line dress part so she doesn't outgrow it so quick.
This is an apron style dress which I found a great tutorial from Everyday Chaos. I made some changes to it, instead of a rectangle I made more of an A-line dress part and as I use french seams to keep it tidy I made my own bias binding to finish the armholes. I also added some lace to the bottom of the yoke, this was actually to hide the stitching from the back yoke piece - if I were to make another I'd make the back yoke piece larger as it just wouldn't come down enough to cover the front seam of the yoke to make it look top-stitched (and provide a tidy finish).
I really love how this dress turned out, it is so summery and almost dressy. It actually started out as a peasant style top but I found after cutting the first piece I wouldn't quite have enough material to make the whole top - whoops! I'll blame that on pregnesia.
I came across that the other day - it's so me.
