Today's dress...

This morning I managed to finish sewing pockets onto the last of the 10 little dresses I'd made this week before then clearing my 'to do' rail of my customers sewing so this afternoon I have ran up dress number 11 from a pillow case.

I've trimmed it up with a matching lilac bias binding and a little appliqued pocket.  What do you think?  I'm sure any little girl would love a pretty dress covered in flowers.

Hello Annie,

Oh what a wonderful idea! I wish Id known this last weekend when we threw out loads and loads of pillowcases and quilt covers. We cleared out the spare rooms bedding drawer :(

Your dresses are all beautiful and what a magnificent cause it is too.

I will hop on over and read up a bit more on it tomorrow when my head is alot clearer!

I do believe (Im whispering now mind) that summer is due to arrive tomorrow and stay for a number of days!! Whoop whoop!

I do hope we all get some beautiful weather to enjoy this weekend! Enjoy yours!
