It's such a wonderful time of the year to be sewing for a child. In Springtime, my thoughts always turn to soft linens and lots of lace.
And diminutive, flowing silhouettes, of course. Then, suddenly it's Easter, and a girl simply must have a new dress...
This type of garment is a very organic process, dependent upon the materials on hand and never the same twice.
This dress was sewn entirely by hand. It was a process that took many hours, but as you may know by now, I love hand sewing. I actually felt more confident with a needle in my hand on this project, rather than a sewing machine. It was so much easier to ease and adjust as I went along.
Happy Spring! xoxo
