I used to make loads of clothes but have got out of the habit in the last few years, but decided to have another go ! I thought I would start with childrens clothes first

I actually bought the pattern and fabric last year but discovered making bags so didn't get round to making it - as my daughter kept reminding me

I am really pleased with how the dress turned out - and more importantly my daughter loved it too.

I ended up with mis-matched buttons, the ones I had bought for the dress originally were too big for my automatic buttonhole foot, so I had to have a rake through my stash - I actually like having the 2 differant ones.
I was so pleased with the dress I ended up ordering some more patterns from Jaycotts as they have quite a few on offer at the moment, I have lots of plans for summer childrens clothes, just waiting for the postman to arrive first !

  1. The dress looks fab, your daughter is very lucky. I bought an Oliver and S pattern a few months back but haven't tried it out yet, bag making is addictive!
