I had everything I needed right in my stash, the pattern, the Thumbelina print, a wonderful burgundy stretch cotton shirting for the lining, bow and collar and tulle. The only (new) purchase I made was the zipper.
Finishing this this little dress made me so happy. Even if she’ll only wear it only twice, I brought to life something that only existed in my head and that makes it all worth it. (Plus, she has two little cousins who don’t mind hand-me-downs…at least not yet.)
