On my doorstep a few weeks ago was a parcel. I bolted inside and ripped it open. Inside was some georgeous fabric from the lovely supermum Karen. She saw this and thought of me and my girls. I tell you what, when someone thinks about you like that, it makes you feel like a million bucks!
Then a few weeks later I received a parcel from a shop which I frequent- Crafty Mamas! Inside was the new pattern from Make It Perfect- Afterglow. Thank you Mrs Crafty Mama!
Saw the pattern, saw the fabric, the 2 were perfect for each other.
This pattern was a little more tricky to do than I first thought, but now I have had a go, the next one will be easy.
The placket at the back, sew the facing on BEFORE you cut it...
The pletes, well I think the next one will be easier
I did cheat and use ready made bias, home made bias and me dont tend to get along.
Then we added a little feature hem at the bottom just coz I could (well my sister did it, I cant take credit for that part)
So I very cute, and easy play dress. Perfect for any woven cotton fabric that you want to show off!
