The original recipient of this dress is now 12. Then I was going to finish it for Hannah, then my niece Steph, then her sister Abigail, and finally now it has been finished for Miss Maddie. It is not a great dress. Dodgy smocking skills and rather dodgy sewing skills, but it has twirl factor, and because of the generous cut should fit her for a long time (don't worry, I am under no illusions that she will get to outgrow it - being white I am sure it will become stained and unrecognisable long before then!)
The kids are off to Granny and Grandpa's for a few days next week so who knows - maybe I can get more than one thing finished this month?!?!
