Christmas Dress and Lil Misses Doll House

The Christmas break has been very busy travelling to my Mums and back then to Mikes Mum and Dads for Christmas.

During this time we had one day at home before setting of for the next destination, so I was determined to make Lil Miss her first Christmas Dress in this time. 


Here she is actually trying to climb into the doll house her grandfather built her

I didn't quite finish it before setting off for the grandparents, so I took my sewing machine along and finished the last ruffle there.


The pattern is Feliz by Farbenmix, although the pattern went together well, I would only suggest this pattern for a experienced sewer, as the explanations for the construction are not step by step.  Not sure if  anyone else thought this.  But as you can see it is definately worth sewing. I am really happy with the dress




 

Lil Miss loves Grandmas dog! Follows it everywhere much to its horror!

As for the dolls house, wow its huge..... Mikes Dad has done a wonderful job, and as you can see Lil Miss had a great time playing with it, including her big brothers!



It also opens up at the back and has a gazebo that attaches at the end of the front porch


Even Mike had fun....
 (although he was just taking a movie )


I can't wait to make some bedding, curtains and many other furnishings for this house.  

 So I guess everyone will get alot of enjoyment out of this house.

I will be linking this up to Tea Rose Home Wednesdays Link Party

I just popped over from kiwi mummy blogs.

Love the dress (esp the material)!

The dolls house is stunning as well! I actually want it for myself. The detail in the furnishing is amazing. (very jealous!!)
