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.
