Some neighbours of ours had twin girls a little while ago....We were so excited for them.They have two little boys already, very similar ages to our children when our twins were born. They are not especially good friends of ours, but more like just good neighbours. We know her parents better.....they own our local Post Office/Pub/Shop! It's that kinda place!
So when it came to getting/making them gifts for the babies, I struggled...would they like something hand-made...not everyone does. What type of thing should I make...something for their room....or should I just go buy them a voucher for a shop, where they could buy essentials for the girls...
But no...I decided to make them sundresses...in a country which hardly sees enough sun to warm our backs! I think this recent spell of good weather went to my head!!
March, they say, is "A month of many weathers".
I used a Farbenmix pattern which I won in a giveaway a long time ago...It's called...wait for it....Zwergenverpackung. There are several other patterns in the packet, aside from the dress. However the dress is very like the free Pop-over Sundress from Oliver+S. I am really hoping, that if the parents like them, that can be worn over long-sleeved tops when the weather is less kind.
The floral fabric was only half a metre, bought locally, and the spotty red fabric came from Dots'n'Stripes a while ago. Dots'n'Stripes also sell the Zwergenverpackung pattern.
