The smile on Isobel’s face suggests she really likes the dress. It’s the same pattern as I made her previous one from, without the collar. Isobel had also pickled some “spotty buttons” to match the “spotty material”. I actually think this looks nicer without the collar and second time around making this pattern meant I was able to concentrate on finishing. There is more top stitching and the lining is much neater and finished.
In other news, it was my birthday recently and my lovely family clubbed together and I am now a proud owner of; an over-locker, pattern master, several lovely sewing books and some more fabric. So watch this space for neatened seams!
