a fairy dress for lil k

the name of the dress given by lil j.  i love how creative he is.  and how he sees things and imagine all kind of things.  i love how chatty he is (although some days i feel so tired listening and talking to him)  and i especially love how he enjoys making lil k laugh.

and so when i made this dress for lil k, he told me it looked nice (he is ever so generous with compliments) and that it looked like a fairy dress.  when i put it on lil k, he said she has turned into a fairy with wings.  i liked that, so this dress is now called lil k’s fairy dress.

the tie was originally made to be worn in the front but lil k loves pulling it off, so i reversed it to the back and that was when lil j said they look like fairy wings.

i’ve made this dress a little long with the hope that lil k will wear it for a long time.  i am sure when she’s grown taller, this dress can be turned into a top, matched with leggings or tights.  and perhaps, when she stop pulling the tie, the fairy wings can grow in the front 🙂

pillow case dress

i think most sewers would make a pillow case dress (or two) at some point of time.  or at least that’s what i’ve gathered from the many blogs i’ve seen.  and naturally, i have to make one myself, no?

well, i do have some pillow cases lying around.  (they come in the sets from lil j’s cot sheets but he doesn’t use a pillow).   and i have not sewn any pillow case dress so far.  so, i think it’s time to bite the dust…

minimal work done on this pillow case (bought the whole sheet sets for only $6). a little ribbon embellishment and binding on the armholes. i think it turned out kind of lovely.
