Inspired by the GBSB I decided to veer away from work sewing and quilting and try my hand at dressmaking.
Stuff for little people is much more fun to make as well as being quicker and cheaper. One of my regular fabric haunts (Plush Addict) had a competition to win a pattern and the fabric to make it up with. I didn’t win but ventured along to the Compagnie M website and fell in love with several of their cute items especially the Lotta dress.
I bought and assembled the pattern, identified stash fabric and a recipient and got sewing! It was fun. The instructions weren’t always clear. I discovered how cool the automatic button hole feature in my sewing machine is and made one major cock up which was attaching the bodice inside out but otherwise it was uneventful and I am delighted with the result, I don’t know if it fits yet, but don’t knock my bubble!
