I've had the idea for this dress in my mind for a very long time and although it began to take shape a while ago it has been a long road to completion and it's still not there!
I loved this children's doona cover and it wasn't until I showed a friend that it was pointed out that it's actually a print of Humfrey B. Bear. That doesn't mean a whole lot to me as I missed out on this Aussie childhood phenomenon but I still adore the print!
The next step is to make a crinoline for under the skirt, I'm thinking super-puffy red fountains of tulle. Mmmm, delicious!
