the dress

It's completed. The little dress I started last week! This pattern is (as the blouse) from an Ottobre magazine, and was an easy project to stitch together. However, I made some modifications. A LOT, to be honest.
It's made out of 3 different fabrics, the pink/brown is by Amy Butler (the fabric goddess!), the purple is from the Echino collection by Kokka, and the green polka dots are unknown. I will get some more of the Echino collection pretty soon, even if it's pretty expensive, and maybe to heavy for childrens clothing.
I also had a couple of extra wooden apple buttons I've bought for the sweater I'm currently knitting, which I used for this dress.

The size? I don't know.. I haven't tried it on the owner yet, but I know it's to big. It's pretty wide, so it might fit her as a dress for a while, and later as a tunic with pants. We'll just have to see ;)
The birds are just too cute!

How very cute! I used to sew for my children when they were little. It's so much fun, when they still have to wear what you give them. ;o)

Helt skjønn kjole! Har vært på et lengre besøk i bloggen din nå - et utrolig inspirerende besøk! Er egentlig en strikker, nå med senebetennelse og en spirende ide om kanskje å leke mer med symaskinen i stedet..Nå fikk jeg virkelig gløden over meg! Takk!!
