Little Dressed Up Miss

So it took me a week, and nearly broke up my marriage (slight exaggeration) but my niece got her birthday present at her actual birthday party, and it turned out great.

I bought the pattern off Etsy, from PetiteKids and the fabric years ago at an Akira remnants and fabrics sale in the GPO. Aside from some severe frustrations with the lining fabric I had, and thanks to a generous friend who gave me some brown cotton fabric to use instead, this dress was great fun to make and I'm really impressed with how easy the pattern was to follow.

My sister-in-law is honour bound to give the dress back once my niece has out grown the dress, so I guess that makes this gift more a loaner than a present...
