I sewed a dress… so exciting. She`s gonna wear it at Christmas Eve. That`s a fine excuse, to explain her daddy why she`s in need of an other one. Doesn`t she look like a little pixy?
When I first saw the Blake Dress by Mingo and Grace, I instantly knew it would be the perfect pattern for this occasion. I made her a size 2 Y and it fit`s like a glove. I used my precious herring bone nani iro from Miss Matatabi. This fabric is a dream. Such a soooft double gauze. It`s like linen it doesn`t matter if it`s creased. I love it, even if double gauze really has a mind on his own, some times.
The dress is fully lined and just to add a little glam factor (come on, it`s Christmas), I attached two layers of golden organza . My little pixy is charmed by the sheen.
Have a look at her shoes, i`m still testing my pattern, it`s nearly perfect. It takes me so much time to get it ready… But in the end it doesn`t matter. It has to make fun. It`s my passion, good things take time, as we say here.
Happy Holidays in advance!
