I don't have much to post about this week because I've put my back out and can hardly walk, let alone sit at my sewing machine, but ibuprofen is my friend and I think I'm on the mend.
Anyway, I thought I show you this sweet little dress that my daughter Hannah helped me make for the lovely Louise at Sew Scrumptious. She is on a mission to dress as many girls as she can, by encouraging crafters around the UK to make a simple little Pillowcase Dress for the Dress a Girl around the world charity. I think it's such a great idea, and had planned on getting all 3 of my kids involved in making dresses during the summer holidays. However the holidays came and went and dresses didn't get made.
Hannah had a day off school last week and she suggested we make a dress while it was just the two of us hanging out. She chose the fabric, cut out the pieces, supervised me sewing and pressing, and decided that any girl needs a couple of pockets in a dress. She's really proud of the little dress and I am too!
I hope a little girl somewhere in the world loves it as much as Hannah :)
I am planning to make a couple more dresses, my boys are keen, and Hannah thinks there may be a little boy in need of some trousers. If any one else wants to join in, you should visit Sew Scrumptious and look at all the beautiful dresses that she has received so far.
Have a nice weekend
