My Creative Space
I thought I'd play along with Kootoyou's Thursday 'My Creative Space' this week. In my space (along with many unfinished projects :-( - is a popover dress for my big girl.
I'm using some lightweight denim bought 2nd hand at the school fete for the dress, and for the trim and straps this lovely "Dance with me" fabric by Jennifer Paganelli. It was given to me by my sister-in-law's mother, a lovely crafty lady (I wonder, is there a name for your relationship to your husband's brother's wife's mother? - hmm)
Finishing it off with some blue ric-rac, it would be all done now if it wasn't for my fiddling (it's a super easy, quick and FREE downloadable pattern from Oliver & S). I decided to add some little pockets to the front, just in case my girl thought the denim wasn't 'pretty enough'. And just because I wanted to try them, working from this tutorial from Made-by-Rae.
The pockets are a little small which I know would bug me, so I'm going to make some bigger ones... hopefully finished soon!
