This sundress! Oh, I just love it...
I had forgotten how much I adored the one I made for my girl four years ago and when it popped in my head I immediately dropped what I was doing last week to start another.
The combination of knitted lace in soft white wool with the Liberty of London cotton lawn is just exquisite. I made this red floral one a size 12 months and listed in my Etsy shop. The hem is hand sewn and the lace is knitted then sewn on by machine and then hand sewn to the fabric on top to lay flat. I made a little different then the original one where the knit portion was inside.

Spring has finally started in the Northeast. Could we be any happier? My daughter pulled out the beach chairs on Sunday and then decided to make lemonade from scratch..on her own mind you while I was upstairs-eek! and later she put on her bathing suit and ran in the sprinkler - it was 68 degrees!
In my yard the daffodils bloomed, the hellebores started opening and this dainty little flower which is so tiny and low to the ground you can barely notice it blue- indigo- violet. It's most certainly a fairy flower.
Just added : a pair of bloomers to the shop and though it can't be paired with the skirt in a matching print it would make a sweet present for a baby and big sister.
I'm working on a very pretty Liberty dress that I hope to finish in a day or two.

I made a few of these wool felt butterfly hair pins over the weekend. They were intended for a certain basket but were spotted beforehand. These could become addictive to make. After I finished, I discovered where the rest of my felt scraps were so I think a few more felt projects will be happening soon.
This project can be found over on the Purl Bee.
