A simple retro dress for a cute little girl

A few weeks ago, during my trip to Belgium, I found a spare afternoon and decided to sew a dress for my niece. I had packed some fabric just in case. I was actually going to make two dresses as she has a twin sister but I ran out of time. I left the fabric and pattern pieces for my mum to sew up the second dress, hopefully in the not too distant future...(still waiting Mum ;) I used a soft knit from Froy&Dind, and the Charlie pattern, by Zonen09. This is actually a pattern for a top for boys, but I...

Creation by Jenya from While she was sleeping

A little introduction to Jenya: Jenya was born and grew up in Russia. Now she lives in regional Australia with her caring husband, two adorable daughters, a happy dog, a silly goldfish, two sewing machines and an overlocker. Yes, it is safe to say that her machines are a part of the family. She would never admit it publicly, but her machines have names! Jenya mostly sews for her girlies and a little for herself. If she doesn't get to sew for a while her eye begins to twitch. The twitch can only be cured by quality time spent with...
