Late Christmas Present.

I'm not the dressmaker in our family, that's my mother. However she thinks those days are over.
So I thought I'd have a go at making a dress for my grandniece, the delightful Miss A.
I was very pleased at how it turned out even if I do say so myself. The pattern is 'Sunday Best' by Kookaburra Cottage, made in Me and My Sister fabric.
I think she liked it.
I'll have to think of something for her 6 months old baby sister, the very vocal Miss S.

Today was the first chance I had to try it on Miss A and finish the buttons and hem. A better late than never Christmas present.

Take care everyone,

It looks so pretty and it seems Miss A is happy with it as well.

It's a gorgeous dress Kayly and well worth the wait. I'm sure Miss A was overwhelmed with gifts at Christmas time so it pays to 'stagger' gifts I think! :-)
