I made this dress yesterday.
I cut the pattern from newspaper, using a top I'd bought for Stella some years back as inspiration.
And just kinda made up the sizing as I went along..
I left it hanging on her door last night. This morning she came wandering out in it, sleepy-eyed, with a huge smile.
She likes it. And it fits perfectly...
main fabric donated to me by my Mum, when she moved up here and downsized.

a thrifted doily.
