Jump Rope Dress

It's nearly finished, buttons and buttonholes (ugh) to go! I tried the bodice on without the skirt, and thought, uh-oh, too small. But now it's all together, it looks great. AND she loves it.

There are great tips to go with this sew a long, however I found the pattern so easy to follow,
with hints along the way, I didn't refer back to the computer.

She picked the fabrics herself from the stash (a bit mothbally, so they must be op shopped).
I bought my first iPhone app this weekend, this great camera one, suggested by this girl at NCB!

I have to agree, lots of fun! As my models smiling-ly show you.

What a cute dress - love the belted waist.
I found some more headbands amongst me mess today too. I'll put them aside for little miss.

What a lovely way of using contrast fabric!

I've cut out my dress and haven't had time to do any more. I'm going to spend the first few days of my maternity leave desperately trying to catch up - that sounds relaxing, no?

Dress is so cute! Nicole got me on to that app as well. Was unhappy to miss ncb, I've made sure I can come to the next!

That's looking sooo good.
You've made me think that maybe I could even get my non-girly girl into one. Little bit retro, a lot bit lovely ( : well done
