Dragonfly Dress for Milla

A few months ago Deb gave me a supermarket bag full of scrap fabric, inside was this purple dragonfly fabric. I had no ideas for things I could use it for, but as soon as Milla spyed it she declared "Isn't is soooo beeeautiful Mummy! All those purple butterflies!" as she looked at me sweetly! The purple force is strong in Milla.

I made the dress in one night a few weeks ago, but it's taken me until today to make the button holes and sew the buttons on. I just really really suck at button holes. 

But! Milla absolutely loves her dress. She has been patiently waiting for it.

Once again its the Savannah Dress pattern, which is now my 5th time making! (I have another to show you next week...) 

It's such a simple dress, and the pattern comes with different neckline and sleeve options. So versatile! Although when I first showed her she said "Thats just like my birthday dress!" So I think I will need to deviate from this pattern eventually to keep it exciting! 

Yay! I love sewing pretty things for my girls!

Thanks for stopping by my blog today xx
