The pattern is once again from ottobre magazine, this time winter 6/2007, baby cross-over pinafore dress. I found the purple needle cord at a local fabric warehouse for $10 a metre and this wee dress took just under half a metre, the floral lining is some that I stole from the depths of Mum's fabric stash ages ago. In fact the velvet ribbon and thread cost more than the fabric.
And some of the details.
I think the most surprising thing about this project for me was that I actually got to sit down and make it pretty much all in one go. Usually I have to grab 10 mins sewing time whenever I can so it was nice to see this go together quickly. I also love sewing with corduroy, it sits so nicely when you are sewing it.
And of course some pics on the girl herself, quite a few because she's so cute!
