$3 dress





I finally got around to sewing this dress for Grace on the weekend. I think the warmer weather sent me into a bit of a panic, as she has no summer clothes and I have so many I am wanting to make. I am rather tight when it comes to spending money on kids clothes as I look at them in the shop and think...'I could make that for a 1/4 of the price blah blah blah', you know how it goes. So I pretty much never buy them clothes and when the need arises I get sewing like mad. So this was some sale fabric I got a couple of months back for $2/meter. My kind of bargain. I am not the biggest pink fan, but I do love cotton voile, so I was sold. I really like the pattern too from Ottobre summer08. Pintucks at the front, sweet frilled sleeves, ties at the back, twirly skirt and one very happy little girl!

Beautiful dress! I subscribe to Ottobre and it is so lovely to see someone make up the dresses. You have inspired me to give it a go!

Nomes, I love it. Has it replaced her favourite tie-dyed 'princess dress'?
