My sewingclass starts in september
so it was high time to try some clothes sewing on my own because well, isn't it fun to just figure it out all by yourself... ?
Mostly not, but this was actually quite fun. It is supposed to be a dress for girls 2 to 3 I lengthened the pattern about 7 centimeters and it is still not a dress but a very very cute tunic-thing. But jeez what were our parents thinking? The pattern is from a thrifted embroiderybook that I adore and the little owl is actually a embroiderypattern from the book (No, I don't know why I managed to give it a seals face.) It needed to be an owl because it is fitted with the cutest buttons ever. So cute in fact they got me trying my first buttonholes ever (That is easy!) Can you believe I only bought 5? ( I am so going back!)
I am in love with the way this thing stands out ( I think the biasbinding hem works great for this) and daughter loved to stroke it and say beautiful, cutie!
OH the fabric is the same as the bonnet form my last post and it comes from li in Singapore
