A simple shirred dress for Ms. M made with a metre of lisette fabric. Originally destined to be part of her five year old birthday presents it didn’t make the deadline. It was then all but forgotten. Now finished it was never intended to be for her sixth birthday until when trying it on as I measured the shoulder straps she suggested it would be a lovely birthday present. “I am sure I can forget all about it” she said with a pleading tone. Too easy. I’m so thrilled that Ms. M loves it so much that she wants it to be a part of her birthday gifts for this year. Absolutely chuffed actually.
It’s now wrapped in brown paper and tired up with
string pink ribbon waiting (in the back of the cupboard) to become one of her favourite things.
