Lately every time I tell Jemima that I am making her a dress, she says, "Oh, for my wedding?" Not this time Jemima Rose.
Jem has a lot of skirts which she wore with leggings at preschool, but they would always end up wet on the bathroom floor (ew).
So I had the idea if I made her some dresses or tunics, this problem would be avoided.
This is another raglan dress from Wholegrain Baby and the fabric is an embroidered denim from Spotlight. I was concerned that it would be too heavy a fabric for this dress, but the more I worked with the fabric, the softer it became. It's not super drapey or anything, but the dress still turned out quite nicely.
I haven't touched my overlocker since I was crushed by morning sickness earlier this year, but happily it was already set to a roll hem and threaded with white cotton, so that's how I did my hems. (Which is great as I hate hemming... especially little sleeves.)
Best of all, she put it on with no fuss this morning. AND even posed for pictures. Phew!!
