Made for Scarlett.

I had the sewing bug last week & made a couple of things for Scarlett. It seems like i'm sewing a lot more for her than the other two, but considering she's now the only one who doesn't need to wear a uniform & is the fastest growing - it makes sense doesn't it?
First up i made this little dress.
I fell in love with this beautiful Japanese cotton & actually wanted to make it into a top for her, but silly me didn't buy enough fabric. So instead i found this vintage pattern - which ended up being perfect because she'll be able to wear this in any weather. The two lovely vintage buttons were from a recent op-shop find.
In the same op-shop i also found this granny nightie. I loved the colour & pattern of the fabric.
I did consider wearing it to bed, but i think The Bloke would've had a fit! instead i turned it into this.
I used a basic peasant top pattern & made it even simpler by using the existing hem on the nightie & the sleeves had a lovely pleated frill on them, so i used those too. Oh & the model - aren't her chubby little cheeks gorgeous? She's made by me too :)
