This year quite a few friends haven’t had good news. It’s hard standing by the sidelines knowing there isn’t all that much you can do to help out (apart from listen). This creation is for one good friend who’s had some difficult weeks, and her little one. It’s more for the summer than now, but it’s been a lot of fun to make..
The fabric used is from what I had leftover after making a shirt, and some toile fabric where I thought I could use up what’s left over from a bigger project. It’s been lovely not having to worry about fit, so I’ve been able to concentrate on fun details like adding a lining and using decorative stitching.
There was one further unexpected addition to my last hours finishing this dress. The next door neighbour’s cat made a beeline for my fabric stash and settled down to a very contented snooze. Nice to know I have such a dress making appreciative feline nearby!
