You guessed it.
I made another Hide and Seek dress
This time for Tilly.
Sewn in Matilda's favourite fabric, velvet.
Slippery, thick, swear word inducing cotton velvet that required every seam to be hand basted before sewing.
Size 4, with length
The velvet was all remnant pieces from my stash.
There was just enough black.
Matilda has signature heart shaped buttons but all I had was MoP which looked too delicate on the heavy cloth.
I remembered some wooden buttons I had, with lots of holes drilled into them, and I tried my hand at a wee embroidered heart.
It works, sort of, enough to keep Tildy happy.
I lined the bodice with Matilda's signature Liberty.
Was she happy?
Was she what!
It has pockets
(lined with Liberty)
The longer sleeves will keep her warm.
Perfect for cuddling upwards
(By reversing the nap, the velvet looks more luxurious)
Perfect for her.
PS If you would like make one, I have a tutorial here. I think there may be one on the O+S blog too.
