I’m really happy to be today’s stop on the Tilda Bumblebee blog hop! As you can probably imagine, I’m a bit of a sucker for anything with bees on it, so I jumped at the chance to sew something with this lovely collection.
This is such a sweet selection of pretty florals in gorgeous colours, and I thought that the blues and oranges would make an adorable dress for a tiny girl.
Unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on your perspective) I don’t have a tiny girl of my own, but my friend Kelly volunteered her niece, and we chose the Geranium dress from Made by Rae with a sleeveless bodice and patch pockets. Pockets are essential for all those pebble/feather/half-chewed sweet storage emergencies that toddlers seem to encounter on a daily basis, I think.
The main fabric for the dress was Flower Nest in ginger, with Cherry Blossom in blue for the lining and pockets. A rummage through the giant tin of randomness (admit it, you have one too) turned up three matching orange buttons. A miracle of almost unprecedented proportions.
I can’t wait to see photos of Kelly’s niece in the finished dress – I think she will look adorable!
