Bandana Dress

19 05 2008

Here’s another birthday present I made for Eleanor. I basically followed the pattern from Daisy Janie except I turned it inside out giving the top a bit of a ruffle. It was my mom’s idea to turn it inside out after I complained about having to fold so much down that it seemed too bulky on the inside. Although this means the side seems are on the outside I think that just adds to the country bumpkin look. I happen to have a denim diaper cover that I think completes the ensemble nicely. The dress is still too big and would be better suited for an 18 month old but it’s fun and didn’t take much effort. I did finally break out the sewing machine in case you were wondering. After hand stitching the sides the kink in my neck told me to just go for it. I can’t believe I held off for so long. Once I remembered how to get the bobbin in it was a snap to make up.

Awww, so cute! You did a lovely job, and now that you have the sewing machine out it will be interesting to see what else you make. Oh, and I just now saw the felted hairband – very cool! I wish I looked good with a hairband.
