The Garden Gnome Girl's Party Dress

Happy Homemade Sew Chic Kids : dress J

This is a party frock I've made for Harriet 'Wukulele' Booth's seven year old daughter. It's another Happy Homemade Sew Chic Kids garment, Dress J made from remnant fabrics left over from a beautiful bespoke Dig For Victory dress Harriet recently had made. Therefore, I take no credit for choosing these wondrous fabrics which were picked by Ms Booth herself – a green lawn print cotton by Michael Miller and contrasting garden gnome design cotton from Hoodie's Collection at Timeless Treasures.

There wasn't quite enough of the grass print fabric to make a full length skirt so I added a jolly gnome border to the hem. I also lined the bodice in a bright green cotton material left over from making this kimono.

The dress is a surprise Christmas present for Harriet's daughter – I do hope they both like it!

  1. I know she's going to love it, and we will look the absolute biz on Christmas Day!

  2. My son Laurie says the dress is beautiful and he is not wrong. Those fabrics are fab. So many lovely outfits in this book. I've finished my first "parka" for the boys. Nice and easy too.

  3. Louise, your son has *great taste*! Agree, it's an excellent book - I'm heading over to your blog to see if you've blogged the parka...

    The Booth, you'll out-dazzle the Christmas tree :)
