This dress took me longer than I expected - but I was sewing under difficult circumstances, which is my excuse for the totally unnecessary, silly mistakes I made in the process. One of them remains as I just couldn't bring myself to unpick the whole thing and decided it would be an interesting original feature (and I actually wonder if anyone who doesn't sew will ever notice it :-P) I also massacred the first buttonhole, though it only shows when you're trying to button it - it's so tiny I had trouble finding the
But now it's done and, despite everything, it's really really pretty. I cut it in the softest flannel fabric, the bodice placed diagonally which makes for a rather pleasing optical effect. The binding is cut from the same fabric, which turned out to have been a rather lucky move (I hesitated, because I hate making my own binding - using the store bought one is soooo much faster - but usually also less pretty, so..). It's size 12 months and fits perfectly. The pattern is from Les Intemporels pour bébés, which I've already made in size 6 months, so no surprises there. On the whole, a resounding success :-D

And now for my last KCW project..!
