A dress for a pussycat.

Miss Pepper was invited to a pussy cat party yesterday.

So after school drop off we came home and got to work on the present.

She helped choose the fabric and insisted on a pocket.

This time I made the top of the pocket by gathering it and then binding over the top.

But when it came to putting on her pussy cat outfit, she wanted to wear her pocket dress instead.

And I was pleased to see that it passed the party wear test with flying colours.

By the time we got home it was covered in face paint, berries and the pocket was filled with rocks...as all good party dresses should be.

I hope you are having a great week.

  1. Yes! Most essential that one has a rock receptacle about one's person at all times.

  4. A pussycat party! What a lovely idea. Were there lots of little children cats lined up drinking milk out of bowls? My kids have all loved playing cats, very cute and funny. Did Pepper have an identity crisis? I thought she was a puppy? xo

  13. That dress makes me want to come and live at your house. And collect rocks and berries. And do my hair in Princess-Leia-Goes-Disco ponies. INSPIRING for my month of sewing - so nearly over, and with so little to show for it...

  15. Coming home with food on the face and rocks in the pocket is just what little girls should be doing!
    My two kids dressed up as cats for Halloween one year. That was fun.

  16. It always amazes me how you put these little dresses together so quickly. I love your post about crochet. I love the pink crochet sleeves and your long crochet edgings. They would be great to sell they could make layers of frills on a bag.

  18. geez I love these dresses you are making. and I am getting the sense that you just 'whip them up'. Nice one!! I like you criteria for a good party dress- no, it's not to sit politely and look 'pretty'!

Thanks so much for stopping by...

I do read every single comment you leave and appreciate it very much, but I should let you know that I can be a wee bit on the useless side when replying to comments, that's just me, everyday life sometimes gets in the way....so I'll apologise now, just in case.
