Making pretty dresses....

I found this old pattern in my Op shop travels...
It looked pretty cute..and lets face it...
little girls dresses just never go out of fashion.
I think the pattern cost me .50cents..
The zip was .50cents
and the vintage sheet was $3.00
So.... for $4.00...Bella had a brand new dress....

Bella loved it...


Now to make one for the Brookie chook.

    1. I am pretty sure its a similar pattern to the one my Mum would have used for my dresses when I was young too Angie... they just never go out of style.

      Oh gosh....I'm no competition to Theresa... If I could...Id have a wardrobe full of Rummage style....they are gorgeous.
