I'm a dressmaker!!

Well .... I made a dress. I used this tutorial.

Fabric is from IKEA. Cost me all of $4 and I have leftovers. Gotta love IKEA!!

Loving the sunshine today.

And my orchids are looking rather splendid too, I think!!

Hope you are enjoying some sunshine too.

Andi :-)

Isn't she just the height of fashion. Lovely job. Careful........ the little girls dress making thing is just as addictive as quilt making.

I ♥ IKEA too and that fabric. I have the black and green of the same line. SO cute AND CHEAP!

Victoria said...

How sweet!!
I am not a dress maker, (or any other clothes maker for that matter) and have so much admiration for those that can and do. The fabric and dress are as cute as your darling model!

Cathy said...

That smile says it all...she loves it! Great dress Andi, and your orchids are just stunning too. xo

Tania said...

In my book, that makes you a most official dressmaker! Besides, it looks most especially spiffy.

Martys Fiber Musings said...

Yes you are a dressmaker of the best kind! The dress is so pretty and Ella is so perfect in it.

Nikki said...

Yep - you're a dressmaker, for sure. And yes... you should heed that warning about the addictive nature of making cute little dresses!! (BTW - I have some of the very same Ikea fabric set aside for just such a project).
