As promised, Sally in action:
It’s a lovely, floaty frock for Bubble to frolic about in on a (rare) beautiful Melbourne afternoon. We were at a party for the first birthday of Miss Tilly, and a fantastic time was had, even if it involved dribbly watermelon, black iced chocolate cake and Bubble’s first skinned knee.
Like Anna, I had a bit of a problem printing the bodice pattern (the fold line didn’t print). At the time I just carried on, but in hindsight, maybe this had something to do with the slightly off-the-shoulder look Bubble was sporting. But she is quite petite, and I’m not convinced I’d be able to get it over her head if the bodice was any narrower. Some of the pattern photos seem to have wider shoulder straps than I ended up with; perhaps user error is the answer?

Regardless, I’m really pleased how this turned out, and am looking forward to making it again, with sleeves and pockets this time.
I was also quite chuffed that my handiwork was recognised as a handmade Sally ‘in the wild’ by Lightning McStitch. We had a lovely (if brief!) chat about sewing and patterns, and discovered that our respective partners had much the same reaction to our enthusiasm for sewing and blogging.
So lovely to chat, it totally made my weekend!
