Crafty girl: Part 4

I'll be occasionally updating my "crafty girl" series as I make new little creations. I have a bunch to show off in the next month or so.

When we moved into our new home, I was so excited to have a spare bedroom. We have a place for company to sleep, and, I have my a sewing room. I've been able to do a bit more sewing, because I can leave my machine up and work a little at a time. Before, it sat on the kitchen table and had to be put away when not in use.
Last month my cousin had a little girl. And no little girl should be without a pretty dress. I whipped this little dress up below and shipped it off. I thought it turned out sooooo cute! And it was oh so easy. I can't wait to see her in it next summer!

What do you think??

Oh it's so adorable. The detailed ruffles on the bottom really sets it off. Plus I love the color and pattern. So classy. Great work Jill!

You did a fantastic job. It will look so sweet on a little girl.

That dress is adorable. You did an awesome job, Jill.

My favorite detail is the little lace fringe at the dainty!

And I understand how you would want to leave your sewing machine out to encourage its use. That's the reason I always wanted a room to hang my instruments...I knew that if they were out and ready to play I would be much more likely to practice than if I had to unpack/repack my violin every time.
