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 fall...so 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!!).
