What to do for a 40th

This has been my latest project. I found a pattern on line an adjusted it to fit. It is for a friends birthday today. It is the 1st time I have done applique. I am pleased with how it turned out.

Thought I'd do a catch up post. This dress I posted about previously, but I hadn't finished. All done now. Not fussed on the colours and DD4 hasn't worn it yet, hope it will get some wear.

I made this dress for DD1. She liked the fabric. It can be worn with or without the tie around the waist.
This was made from a pattern, but I only traced it and didn't have the instructions for putting it together. I'd like to try it again in a different fabric. This one had too much stretch in it.

This skirt is for DD3. I just used the waist/length ratio. The edges were rolled hemmed.
