The sun doth shine!

Finally, we have a warm summery day! And maybe followed by another one tomorrow! Getting washing dry without a tumble dryer the last few weeks has been somewhat of a challenge! Especially when some of the children thought it would be fun to put some towels in a full bath, then put them on some beds!

Anyway, I finally got tired of waiting for an occasion to wear my red dress so I  put it on Molly and took her outside. She seems to have lost some of her padding so the dress doesn't fit her quite like it fits me but you get the idea.
The  lapped zipper at the back

It looks quite nice on Molly, I'll have to hide it from her.

I've also finished making myself a blouse.

Neck detail

Sleeve detail

Again, it doesn't fit Molly quite like it fits me but you get the idea. The best thing about making my own blouse is that I can put the buttons where I need them to stop gaping!

Finally I've made a little Clothkits pinafore for my little girl. I love the colour of this but I found some of the cutting lines weren't placed very well.
The instructions were good though and she loves the little pocket on the front that is just the right size for holding Pokemon cards.

I've been doing some quilting too but that is for another post.
