And then there were 5…

Thanks to cooperative children I’ve finished sewing all 5 of the size 3 dresses for Hobbit. I barely used the pattern and skipped or reordered a few steps as I got further into the pile. They’ve come out pretty well – my top stitching is not the tidiest though. I was successful in buttonhole making with only one coming out a bit crooked and managed to make them all big enough for the buttons too. I did not manage to make my own bias binding for any of them. I’d planned to for the purple and the light blue but had enough fabric leftover that I’d like to do something else with so ended up trimming the purple with black binding and the light blue butterflies with navy.

I ended up with different buttons on the purple – sparkly ones as requested by Hobbit and she also chose to have ladybirds on the butterfly dress. Otherwise all was to plan.
