Tricia was very pleased with the dress (she doesn't sew) and a few weeks later I received an unexpected packet in the post, containing a fat quarter of some very pretty Mabel Lucie Attwell fabric from Tricia, for me to make a dress for baby Mabel. I was delighted because at the time Mabel didn't have a dress and what better than a fabric named for her!
I completed the dress in time for the Chat n Snap in October and baby Mabel wore it to that event. But it is only now that I've finally got down to writing about it properly. The dress has matching underwear and today I have made a bonnet to complete the outfit.
The sweater is a lovely soft pink and I think it goes well over the pinafore I made for Florence. Yesterday I made her a pair of tights out of some patterned socks. So for the colder weather Florence has tights and long sleeves to go with her autumn pinafore.
Thank you Tricia for the lovely sweater and fabric, as you can see from the photos baby Mabel and Florence are very pleased with their new clothes.
