The Blue Dress

I made this dress for my 1 1/2 year old niece Georgia Mary. I took one new white singlet and chopped the bottom off a long dress of mine and dyed both blue, then set to with the sewing machine. I made and stitched the rosettes on while watching Desperate Housewives, it was so riviting I pricked my fingers several times with the needle!!!

No pattern, just a plan conjured up in the middle of a sleepless night and crossed fingers!

It worked, I am so thrilled with how it turned out!!!

Bye for now
