new dress

I have just finished the first of four dresses I am making for 4 of Grandmas great granddaughters... using her skirts, doilies and bits and pieces from her sewing box. The first is a little dress made for a two year old. I used a skirt that grandma wore to the little tots mothers wedding. It is just waiting for me to head into town for a thick yellow ribbon to finish it off. I cant wait for my camera to charge and take a photo.
I have decide to just use my phone..please excuse the quality of the photos!

The colour is spot on in the first photo! Its a simple little pattern, pretty easy to understand for a learner like myself! The next one is for a 4 year old, and I am going to try something new and different. Hope you all enjoy your day!


  1. That is such a lovely idea - gorgeous dress!

  2. It's a beautiful dress! You're so clever! Will we get to see it with the yellow ribbon?
    And thankyou for your lovely birthday wishes, I'm so glad our paths crossed too:) xo

  3. I love the concept of making them from their great grandma's treasures.
    The first one is gorgeous.
