Chocolate, vanilla and strawberry

In my recent post, I showed off a thrift-store find that was going to become a little dress.

Here's the result -- finished all but the little pink buttons down the back, as my new sewing machine and I haven't become sufficiently well acquainted for me to risk mangling cotton lawn while making buttonholes.

There are some scraps left and I'll try the buttonhole attachment out on those before finishing this off.

It's not easy to see in the photo, but I used the waist tie from the skirt to make a tiny bow on the shoulder of the dress.

I'd still wear it, if I could fit into it.
