Mia's birthday dress

Here it is! Phew, like a weight lifted off my shoulder when I finished this dress. Wouldn't she look just so lovely in this sweet dress?

I chose a random fabric I found at Liberty which of course turned out to be by Tanya Whelan. Who else would design such beautiful elegant patterns? (well Cath Kidston would actually, but hers comes in cotton canvas, perfect for home decorations, not for a Princess dress)

The ribbon is a vintage ribbon found at Portobello market, and the only one I have on-hand that is long enough for this project. Turns out to be a rather sweet combination...

aaah loving all the gathers...now if only this dress comes in adult sizes....(although, if it does, it may not look quite as cute on me as it does on Mia i'll bet ;) )

this dress is so sweet..the color is so feminine as it's in pink. but to me the dress before is just as brilliant! the color was more livelier :) in my humble opinion la..

Hi there,
The dress is totally gorgeous. Love the vintage blue ribbon. I'm really excited you found my fabric at Liberty!! one of my favorite stores. Happy Birthday to Mia!

yes the momentum is the key. kalau dah lama tak sew mmg susah nak start balik...
