summer dress with flamingos
You read it correctly....
I took Miss C. to the heirloom store
for some help with my baby dress
and she saw the flamingo fabric
and we had to have it!!
I guess that will teach me to take her with me!
It is a beautiful pique and I have just the pattern for it.
Last year (or maybe the year before) I made her
a cute summer dress using "Callie"
from the children's corner.
It had been a favorite.
I had made it out of pique and Liberty.
While it still fits her in the chest,
it is now way too short!
It was never long but now....
it looks more like a top!
So I will be sending it to my friend who
has two younger daughters.
So I made the next size up,
added 1 1/2 inch to the bottom.
It is almost finshed,
just need some buttons.
you might be familiar with my dislike for buttons,
actually it is the button hole that I do not like!
I know my machine make them
but they are never to my liking.
So I was thinking of using snaps,
like I did for the previous one.
One question remains:
which one to choose?
what do you think: right or left
Please let me know what you think!
Come check out
it's a party!
