my creative space ... little dresses

This may be the last of the holiday sewing, but it was probably the most enjoyable. I made two little dresses for my nieces ...


I used two wonderful patterns from Wink Designs - the Criss Cross Reversible Dress and the Petal Power Sun Dress. The Criss Cross Reversible Dress was a pleasure to make - very satisfying and great instructions meant no mistakes on my part - yahoo! Fabric for this dress came from the stash, but was orginally bought from Patchwork on Central Park.



The only thing I changed on the pattern was including a pocket instead of appliqueing some flowers on one side of the dress. (I did a post on my tags the other day, if you're interested in finding out how to get your own tags).


The Sun Dress was also made from fabric from the stash, originally from Patchwork on Central Park. No changes to this dress, except that I put press studs on the back instead of buttons. Super easy to make.

Oooh I love them, particularly the Criss Cross reversible one - I kid myself that if only I had girls rather than boys I'd make cute stuff like this to dress them in.

Thanks for sharing these Nic. It's always such fun to see how the patterns get made up in real life!

Oh Nic, these dresses are just G.O.R.G.E.O.U.S Love the fabrics and matching but not matching set. The decorative stitching on the pocket is very nice. great work!
