After my first babydresspatterndraftingexperience went rather well, I was eager to sew up another one. This time, I took pictures of each step, which I can use to for the instructions which will accompany the pattern.
Yes, that's right: I'm still living in this phantasy land where I think I can combine taking care of two kids with a demanding job in a different country, and a pattern business.
I really wanted to use a white fabric this time, as it suits dark-haired children so well. And, this will be one of my last chances to use the black hair/white fabric combination, as Ava is steadily turning into a blonde! Underneath her beautiful black hair, a new layer of blonde, almost white hair is appearing. The black hair will probably start falling out soon. Question is: in which pattern will it fall out? Will Ava look like a skunk in a few weeks? Or more like a dalmatian? Or a Malayan tapir?
The main fabric is Lotta, Jansdotter's Glimma Tove in Slate - a left-over from Norah's bean bag. The little strip of yellow fabric is Korkek in Dandelion, also from the Glimma line.
In case the pictures aren't already clear enough: Ava has been growing well. In length, but especially in, ahem, width. She's well above the average curve weightwise. If she continues like this, I will to have to buy a wide-angle lense.
