Finished! And looking good!

Well it didn't take me long! I finished this dress within 24 hours of starting...I think that's a new record for me! I did a little bit of modification from the original pattern and added a side tie to create a small gather and another daisy to adorn it. Happy Birthday, my little Mouse!!

I am pretty happy with the finished product and will definitely be trying more garments in the future! I am so happy to have a niece to make this stuff for - I enjoyed making this so much!
Once I have gotten a little more practice under my belt, perhaps I'll sell some of these in my shop.
In the mean time I have added a couple of new baby blankets to my shop stock! I am gearing up for participating in the Georgina Studio Tour in the my hands will be busy over the summer! I'll blog more about the Tour later. So if you've got a moment, grab a coffee and swing by my shop to browse the newest additions!

Daisy Yoke Dress

I am trying something new! I have never made a "garment" before, generally sticking to less complicated and free form items.

I have never been one to read patterns very well, especially when they are complicated!! But I couldn't resist this time. I found a really cute summer dress that I am hoping to surprise my sweet niece with on her birthday! I have been working feverishly for the past day and have accomplished a lot so far.
Here's a peek of the early stages...

I am thinking it may be a little big for her now...but that's okay, she's growing fast! Depending how I make out with the finished product and if I can get her to model the dress for me, I'll post some photos!
(Hmmmm...those cute Daisies could become an inspiration for some very COOL scarves!!).
