Anna's been a bit cranky with me lately because I've been making dress after dress for myself and none for her - every day when I pick her up from daycare she asks me if I had made something special for her and when I say no there's a bit of foot stamping and crankiness let me tell you! So I decided to whip out a simple dress for her, and even let her pick some fabric out last time I was in Spotlight. Unfortunately she picked out a polycotton that is such poor quality that after prewashing it already felt rough and pilled, and a little bit faded which is annoying but given she'll no doubt grow out of this in millisecond I decided just to make it quickly to keep her quiet (ie to stop the whinging so I could go back to sewing for me!).
before and knew that it would fit her because as usual I was sewing when she wasn't available (usually I sew when she's sleeping or at daycare) and I didn't want repeat of the last badly fitting dress I made for her. She wore this to daycare during the week for their Easter Hat parade, although this year she didn't want a hat at all, just some bunny ears much to my disappointment. Nor would she behave and let me get a decent photo either!
Just for you Sandra I included a photo of our front fence (and overgrown lawn). At the first Sydney social sewists meet up Sandra mentioned that whenever she saw a white picket fence she's reminded of my house which has appeared only a few times on this blog, which is very sweet!
And now back to sewing for myself. Thankfully it's a public holiday tomorrow because otherwise I would be back at work - yes my child free and work free time has come to an end. It's Toby's first birthday on Friday, this year has just flown by.....
