Last year I actually got around to doing some sewing before christmas. I made a couple of gifts as well something each for the kids.
First I made a dress for our baby niece in the UK. I never know what to get wee babies for christmas so I thought clothes would always come in handy. I have had the image of this wee dress in my head for ages (was originally going to make it for Miss M), and I was pleased to have the excuse to make it. I used the Carla C A-Line dress pattern which is my "go to" pinafore pattern these days. Made in a medium weight denim with red polka dot cotton lining, edged with ric-rac from Mum's stash and with a flower applique. I was really pleased with the result but unfortunately didn't get any decent daylight photos before it headed off in the post.
