Portabellopixie Gracie V-Neck Dress and Tiered Skirt - Size 6-12 mths

When I first received the Gracie pattern I tried out the tiered skirt and V-Neck Dress in size 6-12mths.

My sewing on the bodice of the dress leaves a lot to be desired. One side seam is a centimeter or more off from the skirt seam. The straps are different widths, and the front of the bodice (joining the straps) are different widths also.

The top stitching on the bodice is wonky, really wonky.....

.....but I love how it looks anyway. lol.

2The skirt surprised me, I thought it would be smaller as many of the portabellopixie patterns are said to run small, but my almost 5yo can still fit in it (it is quiet short though and only just fits in the hips).

I have made another of these skirts (in different fabric) to give to a family member for her birthday, she has turned 2 but is petite and I think this size would suit her better.

I have now used up all this fabric making my daughters birthday dress but just might see if there is any more on the quilting cotton clearance racks at spotlight next week.....the pink is just so romantic.
