No embroidery--Rainbow Patchwork Dress


This was made to order for my friend's daughter. I used 92 charms for the skirt. Took me a while to figure out how many to use for each row.

Lily is modeling for me here.

Both are adorable. Now that you have figured out how many charms and your sweet model likes. You need to make one similar for her.

I've been thinking about that, trying to figure out what fabrics to use. I really shouldn't buy more stuff. Hope I can make what I have work.

Hi Lucia, and it's so lovely to see your avatar back on here. I do hope Lia will start to sleep through for you soon. It's hard trying to do things with a little baby around, never-the-less you've done a wonderful job with this dress. Such a lot of work with all those patches. I see you mentioned below about the Peppermint dress - I can just see Lily wearing that. Our grand-daughters just love them. Good luck with Lily's hair growing too. Love Chris

Hi Chris, thank you so much! You do read everything, don't you! Thank you for caring so much! The peppermint dress hasn't been made because I was having a time finding the right fabrics. I should get started so Lily will have something lovely too!

Beautiful daughter Lily! Your choice of charm packs for this pattern turned out quite lovely!~hugs~ PS nice to "see" you here again & the baby must be growing like a weed too!

Thank you! I bought 2 charm packs of pastel but didn't have enough. The orange ones look ok as they are in my stash but they look a little big out of place. Still, orange is one of the colors of the rainbow, I guess it's fine.

I know I've not been around much and I miss you very much. Lia is 8 months and hopefully she'll sleep through the night soon. I've been so sleep deprived that I haven't feel energetic enough to do much sewing. This was an order so it had to be done.

PS Lily is delightful and a great model for you

babolucia by babolucia 14 Mar 2015

Thank you! I thought about it because Lily loved it so much, but then my friend might not be too happy because she is a neighbor. She might not want to see Lily stealing the glory. I really should make Lily the peppermint dress.

Thank you! My friend showed me a picture online and wanted something like that. I can't take credit for the idea. We decided to change the bodice from black and white gingham to white knit though.
