My latest creation....
This summer frock is for our lovely little friend India, for her 3rd Birthday. I might add...her Birthday was in May, so this gift is quite late, "better late than never"...I say ! (Note to other friends with little girls..dresses may come later than the expected celebratory day, categorized as "Amy Time".
I used the leftover fabric Chloe picked out for her matching frocks, our most treasured Flea Market Fancy by, Denyse Schmidt. This time, I got a little more creative and added my favorite brown and white gingham to the bottom with some decorative my rick rack as trim.
The best part about creating this dress is, I learned how to make bias tape out of fabric. I used the bias around the arm holes, and I must say, making your own (if you have the time) is so much better quality then the solid color pre-made stuff. I used this tutorial from Super Naturale, and it was the best instructions I have found on the subject. I really need good visuals when it comes to learning a new technique.
Thanks, Amanda J, I am going to be making my own bias for a long time to come !!!
Now we are off today, to deliver it to our friend...hope she loves it as much as we do !
