Burda 06/2006 - 138 Girl's dress

I made this cute dress for my friend's daughter, based on a Burda magazine pattern that I cannot show you thanks to the silly website changes, but it looks a lot like this....


The original has 4 flounces and I decided 2 was enough in this size (3T), but I will check the length and add another flounce if needed, I have lots of fabric left over. I also self lined the bodice and sewed a separate casing for the waist drawstring.

I also made a matching bolero which is from Simplicity 3943; this was in my pattern stash from last years bridesmaid dress project.






I hope she likes it, it was fun working with loud fabric and frilly patterns!

How cute!! I love making little girl clothes, however no one in my family will cooperate and have a girl! Instead I make little boy outfits....

Oh, it's just beautiful! I'd love to make something like this for my friend's little girl, who wears mostly jeans (she's eighteen months old). But her mum doesn't like girly things and I fear I would be "making a point!" Which wouldn't be fair.

But it is lovely. The colours are wonderful.

What a cute little outfit! I made this pattern for my daughter years ago and the dress was so loved, it was passed onto the cousins when she outgrew it. I'm sure your friend's daughter will love wearing it.

A tiny bolero? You're killing me with the cuteness of it. I love the fabrics. And why can't you wear those fabrics too? One is never too old for beauty. And besides, you're younger than me. If you're old, I'm ancient. Wait, did you offend me or did I offend you? Or did I offend me? Oh who cares, the outfit is gorgeous.
