China Dresses

April 21, 2009


I bought this satin jacquard a long while ago to make a luxe baby blanket for Miss M. Surprise! It never became a blanket. Miss J has been requesting a “china dress” out of it for quite some time, so I decided to give it a go for Easter this year.

I didn’t have enough fabric to make two full dresses, so Miss M’s outfit became a two-piece look, and I really like how it came together. I wanted to use ivory English net for her tutu, but alas, no stores in my region carry English net: the sales ladies there looked at me like I was crazy when I asked for it and promptly directed me to the nylon tulle selection. Fortunately for me, I found a non-English-net alternative in the Christmas fabrics section: a sheer fabric with a gold mesh pattern on it. Made for a cute (if not quite as versatile as planned) frilly skirt!
