WIP and a new craft

Ahhhhh, finally I have gotten back behind my sewing machine, and doesn't it feel good to be doing something other than housework for once.

So.... while the kids were napping yesterday I made up this dress for Izy that I had cut out last week, I made it in the smallest size just to get an indication of what size she might be for summer (and it will definately be the next one up) still have to do buttons and button holes (or maybe snaps if I can find buttons to cover them up)

I have also been making a pair of matching panties to go underneath from the pattern that Sahra sent me, but they are too big so will need some modification.
On the weekend I went to the Wagga CraftAlive fair and picked up this Lace Dying kit.
From which I dyed this cute little motif.
I think it looks really cute sewn onto a plain white top for Izy.

I love that dress! I have heaps of bloomers patterns for babies too if you would like me to send you a copy?

Oh that is just too sweet!!! Perfect for such a gorgeous little girl! Love the little motif you've dyed as well, looks great sewn onto that shirt.

That dress is so adorable! You'll have to update us later with modeled photos. I love the idea of dying the motifs too, they look fantastic.

I love that dress!!!
Nice work with the dyeing too... I am yet to venture into the world of dye, but it looks like fun.
