My new sewing machine needed a cover because it didn’t come with one. I took the opportunity of using the variety of different stitches that exist on the new gem of a machine and I’m pleased with the result. I particularly liked doing the smoke from the chimneys on the little houses and for that I used a curly stitch. If you click on the picture you can make it bigger to see the detail.
The sewing machine is bigger at the base by quite a lot so I had to be careful with the measurements, but it came out just right in the end.
I just finished this Vivienne dress for my grand-daughter. It is all cotton, fully lined and this time, with sleeves.
If you want to make it for yourself you can find the pattern here or just click on the Frocks and Frolics button on the right hand side panel.
The dress has a circular skirt of 2 metres, which is great for a 'spin'.
This pattern is not just for little girls. It is for big girls too. The pattern is available for all ages to adult size (just) and comes in a variety of guises: circular skirt, box pleat skirt etc. with or without sleeves and all from one pattern. It's a real gem.
Here is the video which shows you how to make it up (although it does come with instructions too).
