Check it out... I've been meaning to post these pictures for a few days now. Here are the little girls dresses i have made recently. I will be putting them up for sale on my Facebook page and at the spring fair this Saturday.
This one is about age 6. It is made using dutches satin, fully lined with zip fastening at the back. It has a burgundy satin sash around the waist. It also has a layer of net underneath the satin to make it a bit fuller. Perfect for little bridesmaids!
This dress is supposed to be age 2. It is made out of dutches satin again, but this time it has 2 layers of organza overlay on the skirt, frilly organza straps and a pink organza sash around the waist. It fastens with a zip at the back and is fully lined.
I made this dress using a mixture of patterns. I picked the bits i liked from various patterns to create it. It is made out of pretty flowery cotton, has a sheer ribbon to tie around the waist and the bodice is lined in the same fabric. The straps untie to allow you to slip it on. This dress is also aged 2.
This dress is aged 2. It is made out of pretty cotton with tiny blue flowers and the bodice is lined. It has a light blue organza ribbon around the waist to tie in a bow. It fastens by poppers on the straps.
I am really really pleased with them. The satin dresses are so lovely and would be perfect for special party dresses or for bridesmaids. The two cotton dresses are so cute!! I will definitely be using these patterns again, they are perfect for little summer dresses or special occasions and could be teamed with long sleeved tops and tights for winter.
Phew.... finally posted! Well i hope you like them. I have been working hard for the fair on Saturday. I am calling it a day now on the making front for it and just need to finish pricing up and organizing everything. I was reading a post on someones Facebook the other day where someone asked tips for doing craft fairs. It was quite helpful actually. One thing i took note of was to create different heights and layers to the table, so i need to find some boxes i can display items on.
I hope your all having a good week, i'm so glad its Friday tomorrow!!
