I actually made a gift for each of my nieces this year.
These little pop-over sundresses should be nice and cool to wear (if ever we get any summer weather). The pattern comes from Oliver + s and is one that they share for free. They were so quick and easy to make. I’ve also popped in a little white t-shirt to wear under the dresses for those cooler days.
The pink one for my seven year old niece was made from my stash. The main fabric was actually left over backing from a quilt I made for her first birthday. The ric rac trim on both of them is as old as the hills from Mum’s stash.
After I made the blue dress for my three year old niece I have learnt that she loves butterflies and has just started to only wear dresses and skirts so that she can twirl like a princess. Phew! I think I might have got this one right. Funnily enough, I had also bought a “Princess” colouring book for her.
This is the first time I have made clothes for them as I never know what size to make, so hopefully I have got it right.
We are back into nearly winter clothes yesterday and today. It is freezing! Our minimum was 5 deg C this morning. That’s crazy. Also, we had another 21mm of rain over the weekend, which followed 70mm in just half an hour on Tuesday. Our driveway is a mess. Poor Mick is trying to fix it up enough for family to come down it (and then get back up) on Christmas day. Just what he didn’t need at this time of year.
