I really made my dress a few cm shorter, just to save some of this beautiful fabric for her. It was exactly enough, to make this tinny little babydoll. Even though, I had to be creative. Sometimes, I ask myself, does it just happen to me? It seems like, I always have barely enough fabric.
I wanted to show the different shades of color on the bodice too. As the squares are quite big, I went for a patchwork. I like the result!
I`m not a patchworker, but I didn`t go for straight squares. I wanted it to look like the design on the skirt. Probably I shouldn`t say that… i did it with my serger.
The dress is self-drafted. I love the shoulder part. If you ask me, the boxy shape is a nice contrast to the smooth skirt fabric.
Usually, if I come up with a new dress and ask her to try it on, she says no-no and walks away as fast as can be. But this time, she took the dress in her hands and tried to pull it over her head. As if to say, what a beautiful dress you made me, mummy. She couldn`t make me a bigger compliment. I was touched!

danke annika! i had so much fun taking those pictures of her, even if she wasn’t sure if she likes to stand on the kitchen table 😉
This fabric is amazing and your dress is so lovely… I love it! 🙂
Love how you let the fabric determine the pattern of the dress. The patchwork really emphasizes the beautifull collors of the fabric.
