Petit Pan for petite L

L became 7 years old last week! It has been fantastic days. Today the garlands and balloons were cleared away. Last holidays were there for several preparations.
No mama, I do have enough clothes, she made me understand. But, after showing this image, she absolutely wanted to be a birthday girl in such a dress. Two Petit Pan fabrics (wow!) were ordered and, as L couldn't decide, we decided to use both. Now in the end I really love the combination of the fabrics, my first Petit Pans, including the red lining.


Making the dress was like a course for me. The beautiful book of these two sewing genius guided me. But there was a lot of error! I sewed the outer and lining fabric together on the sides and discovered my mistake quite late! Then the making of my first blind zipper. I didn't understand how to attach the lining to the zipper, but after a little more thinking it succeeded finally. But let's be positive: I learned!



And most important: L is so happy, she keeps on swirling. Something she wanted for a long, long time. And looking at this birthday girl makes me happy!
