Two dresses in one day ...

... after finishing DD2's dress yesterday I got straight on with making DD1's (well I didn't want any trantrums!) Despite my sewing machine deciding to throw a wobbly with its tension (I lost count of how may times I unpicked the bias binding straps) I got it finished before bedtime.

And here are the dresses with their proud owners (DD2 would't be photographed with DD1!)


They're a bit shorter than I would have liked and a snuggish fit so not sure if they'll still fit next year. Nevertheless I'm pleased with my efforts.

Fay, those are beautiful! I'm sure the girls are very impressed and pleased. Of course, DD2 can "hand down" her dress to DD1 next year... maybe you need to make the next size up for her, in readiness!
You could sell these dresses - they are really pretty. I know a lady who sells baby and toddler dresses on Facebook. She does very well (though she is also very busy with her orders!). I bought 2 dresses from her for my nieces' babies - they were very nice, but you know, yours are nicer (shhh)!

Gorgeous dresses, they must be very proud to wear them! I keep meaning to make one for my little girl, but it's one of those projects that's hard to get started with! x
