My Creative Space - Little Plaid School Dress

This little dress has been in my UFO pile since September.
I started it on my birthday, as part of a sewing day with my mum, though it has lingered since then waiting for sleeves and a skirt.

I started with a simple sleeveless dress pattern and 
added the details as I went, 
their is pin tucks, ruffles and self covered buttons, including a my favourite a hand stitched hems
I couldn't resist calling this her "Little Plaid School Dress"
as she is soooo ready for school although she's only 3!
On the weekend we received a lot of lovely comments about it.....though at the moment it is a bit roomy, and she kept showing off a bit of her shoulder....but at least it will fit her next year too!
And I'll leave you with this photo.....I have loads of these pics, as she cracked me up with her many attempts to get that water out..... including sucking it from the source! ewww!
