I made this lovely Geranium dress for Ella as part of Kids Clothes Week. This beautiful fabric is Timber Valley in Coral from the Brambleberry Ridge collection by Violet Craft. I love the little deers, foxes and birds and the metallic gold trees, it's just gorgeous. And I always love sewing geranium dresses. I haven't made the pleated skirt version before so I thought I'd give that a go this time. I finished the back with some lovely shell buttons which actually came from an old necklace of mine that broke - love a good upcycle!
I didn't want to waste any of this lovely fabric so I sewed a miniature version for Ella's doll, Molly. I love this doll - the pattern is the Little Amigo Doll from Meg McElwee's book, Growing Up Sew Liberated. I didn't know when I made the doll that Ella's hair would end up just as crazy as Molly's - they are like peas in a pod now!
