Finished my first attempt at sewing a garment. Only small and not perfect but quite pleased with it.

I think that's lovely. Well done to you.

That’s lovely! I’d be very pleased with it!

How pretty, well done.

That’s lovely. Well done Ginny, is it for a Granddaughter? May it be the first of many little dresses you make for her, I made all my daughters little dresses and did the same for my Gd,s

Very sweet! Someone is going to look very pretty in that little frock!

grandmajet Mon 15-Feb-21 08:16:24

It looks beautiful!
Have you tried it on?!!

Well done you should be very proud of yourself.

Beautiful little dress! I made all my daughters' clothes and they always had matching knickers!

You can be very proud of that Ginny, and the satisfaction you will receive when you see the recipient wearing it will know no bounds. What are you going to make next?

So pretty! I adore my DGS but do get a pang now and then not to be able to smock pretty dresses.

How lovely. Hope it meets with a better reception than a similar dress, made for DD over 50 years ago, which was rejected out of hand because “it looks home made”. Stuck to doll’ clothes after that.

That looks lovely. What are you planning to wear with it?

Well done! it is very pretty.
I love red and pink together.
I also like pink and orange in blocks.
