When you are the youngest of six there is really not much you need in the way of presents, the oldpolicehouse is already overflowing with toys and games for every age group. However everyone needs a little spoiling at Christmas and I wanted our littlest to have a special just for you gift. Ignoring all the many presents yet to be bought and wrapped, I hunted through my ever growing pile of lovely fabrics and chose a festive colour for a new dress.
It was really quick to make, despite many interruptions it was finished in under two hours. The pattern (from here) included a very simple tutorial which made the whole process very easy, this was also where I bought the gorgeous baby cord fabric. I am sure Ruby will get lots of use out of this very practical as well as pretty dress, the neckband is elastic which hopefully will make it easy for her to dress herself in the future too.
I am off to make a matching eye patch now, conveniently ignoring the ever growing to do list.
Our advent candle is telling us there is not much longer left before the big day!
