Mummy The Sewing Goddess Pedestal

I must admit, now that I have started to make little girls clothes, I am quite addicted. Let's face it really, I had best make the most of it now as I am sure in a few years there is no way Emily will want to be seen dead in something that Mum has made ! Right now, however, I am up there on my Mummy The Sewing Goddess Pedestal. ( the fall down will be hard ! ) . Squeals of delight are forthcoming upon the completion of each item and well, thought she would pop a vein over this twirly layered skirt when she tried it on. Little devil was not going to stand still for a photo though, so hence I have pulled out the torso plastic dummy. The beauty of this style is the fact it can be made as a dress for a 2 yr old toddler ( just add shoestring straps ) or fits as a skirt for a 4yr old. I followed the pattern formula on this link at J Caroline Creative. You will just need to adjust your measurements to suit. Make one for yourself while you are at it !

oh nice! I love making my Jem things- so much easier than boy stuff.. poor Caleb. I have a few skirts like that that have become a little small for me, perhaps I should make one for me... J really doesn't need anything at the moment!

So sweet! I used to paint T-shirts for my little brother and he used to love them, but then he grew up into an obnoxious teenager and everything I touch is now automatically "uncool".:(

*sigh*
