Party Dress

With all the decorations back in the loft for another year the party season is over, but I realised I'd never showed you the dress I made Amelie for Christmas Day.

It's based on the Geranium dress that I've made lots of times before, this teacup version is still one of my favourites.

The new version is in fine needlecord with a paisley print and it is as bright as it looks in the photos. Well it was for a party after all! I cropped it short for a sugar-plum-fairy effect and added eight layers of tulle underskirts and a cotton lawn lining. Simple when you say it quick, not so easy at 10pm on Christmas Eve. 

 I raided the button tin for some vintage buttons and these turquoise ones were spot on.

When she tried it on, size 4 was a bit too big so I added a ribbon to cinch it in a little.

It was a hit!
Thanks for dropping by,


  1. That is adorable and I bet it has a great "twirl". Happy New Year!

  2. Such a pretty dress and I bet Amelie felt extra special wearing it. Happy New Year!

  3. So pretty! Amelie is a lucky little girl to have such a thoughtful and talented Mum. Happy New Year x

  4. beautiful dress for a beautiful girl, there is something about making clothes for your kids when they are little - I miss that now mine are grown.
