I made another dress for Noor, out of some Liberty lawn. This fabric has the name 'Hanako' which means flowerchild. I like the delicate grey tones of this particular colorway so much.
The dress is a tad biggish, I want Noor to wear it for several seasons... I applied 'proper' sewing techniques this time (bias skirt and edgings, voile lining, button strap)... I'm well pleased with the result, the dress looks very finished despite the simple cut.
The flowerchild herself had to be bribed into a picture. She too was very pleased, with the biscuit.
She is going through some growing pains of late - she has trouble with afternoon-sleeps, some days now she has no day sleep and just goes straight to nighttime beddy. She's not too difficult, and I mustn't complain as Noor has been the champion of sleeps (she did 3 to 4 hour ones right up until now) but I am having difficulties to fine tune myself to a full day life without nap (read- personal break or catch your breath). Also the making of little things (knitting/sewing) and 'netting' (blog, flickr, rav) seems now reserved for nights only...
Wishing you a happy weekend
