The Bubble Dress and the Bucket Hat

It’s been a while since I last updated the blog. But it has been a while since I’ve been sewing, making crafts or baking. Blogging does seem to take a lot of time and effort when the day is all go between the waking and sleeping hours.

Anyhow, I did get some sewing done in the last few weeks. I had some navy polka dot fabric and thought it would be perfect for the Oliver + S Bubble Dress. I had extra fabric, so I made the Bucket Hat from Little Things to Sew. After I finished the dress, I realised that it would have looked even better with red piping round where you joined the bodice and the skirt. And I had envisioned a matching hat with red flowers or ribbon of some sort – but I didn’t have any on hand. As for the buttons, I only had 2 round ones, the heart button is there only because it was the closest match colour-wise.

Miss S had a ball “modeling” the outfit – she got to prance around on the deck in her brand new red sneakers, you see, and she had a lot of fun. Can’t wait for the warmer months so she can get some wear out of this outfit. :)
