Ottobre 1/2016-18

My nerdlet loves birds, especially flamingos and peacocks.  When I saw this fabric, I knew she would love it.  I had just received the newest edition of Ottobre, which had this dress.  The picture is not that good because the nerdlet was not exactly being cooperative.  I barely got her to take off her jacket and she wouldn't let me straighten the dress on her shoulders.

I finished the neckline and sleeves with fold over elastic.  She really likes the style and has asked for more.  I think she is outgrowing her desire for frilly over-the-top girly dresses and is looking for more comfortable and simple dresses.


  1. Aww, Nerdlet looks so shy about having her photo taken. I remember Sprogzilla being like that too. That is a beautiful dress. The fabric is stunning. Xx

    1. She doesn't really look at people in general and photos are really hard for her.

      Thank you. I didn't buy any extra of this fabric and I only have a small piece left that I'm not sure is big enough for anything else, but if nothing else, I might make a doll t-shirt.
