Vintage dress

I couldn’t resist making a dress for Abby too to go with her cardi and bootees. I used a vintage Style dress/pinafore pattern I found in a charity shop last year and luckily it still had all the pieces. Don’t you hate it when they don’t! Anyway, it’s the 6 month size but she’s a titchy wee thing, so hopefully it’ll fit and she can wear it on all the hot summer days we’re going to have in the coming months.

A close-up of the fabric. I bought it in a Liberty sale some years ago, maybe 4 and have had it socked away for a rainy day. Don’t you hate hand-stitching bias binding…….but it looks loads better than machine stitching it on something that small and fine.

And the reverse. I just love the button!
