Jenny – A cute girl’s dress

A few weeks ago a friend of a friend, a grandmother to be,  asked Sylvia and I to make a dress for a little girl age 2. The baby is yet to be born so Grandma was planning ahead.

This is the sort of project that Sylvia and I love to get stuck into. A nice easy pattern and some lovely fabric presented us with no technical difficulties apart from trying to sew buttonholes in broderie anglaise with a raised flower motif, which defied all attempts to create a neat finish on our test pieces. We overcame the problem by using pop fasteners with buttons over the top. It is always satisfying to find a way around problems like this.

If you would like a hand sewn garment made or alterations to an existing one, Sylvia and I will be happy to take commissions. Please contact Jenny or Sylvia
