the joys of making sparkly Olivias and the 3.5 yo!

Sorry for the lack of blogging.  But I struggle to write blogs without clear pictures of what I am talking about.  But you must understand, when you have a 3.5 yo and a 5yo who will not stay still for photos, the photos are rather boring, or out of focus!

You get photos such as these



Pattern Olivia by Farbenmix. Fabric some sparkly polyester stretch stuff from Spotlight.

Not sure how it will wash up, but mainly for dress ups anyway, its not everyday wear sort of fabric. Got the idea from Sara at Willow and Moo.


Rolled hem and cuffs using embroidery thread. I usually iron up the hems but as its polyester i didn't feel confident adding heat.



Since posting this I have been informed, by the mother of the owner of the pink one... that being my sister... that I have created a big rod for her back. Not only is it likely that Indi will love her new dress, but its unlikely she will ever take it off. Its her new sleep in, play clothes, have bath in dress.
