Dress for Princess
Recently SewHip magazine had a fantastic pattern by a designer Oliver +S, the free pattern link is here.
There was plenty of leftover fabric from the cupcake aprons, and I was just dying to use it again. Although all our friends are having baby boys, my gorgeous cousin Corrine is a little princess.
I took the basic pattern, but due to the nature of the cupcake fabric, it was clearly going to be see-through, so added a lining. Using just a white cotton, I took the same pattern piece for the dress and reversed. Interestingly, this dress pattern would work perfectly for a fully reversible dress if you hemmed it perfectly.
I posted it off to Corrine yesterday, so hopefully I might get a photo back in return:)
I wish more friends had baby girls! It's just so hard to see all this gorgeous girly fabric that I have no uses for.
