Finished Commission

Here it is then -the finished product I've been harping on about in my last few posts.

Just to re-cap, I received a commission for which I was given some very cute ballerina fabric. Due to the girlish print I decided to pair it with the slightly darker contrast blue (which has a denim texture print) to ensure that the end product wasn't over the top -Having said that I couldn't resist adding some ruffles to the bloomers!

As with my previous sun dress/tunic top I've cut it with functionality in mind, enabling it to be worn not just as a dress with bloomers but a tunic with leggings/jeans too. I've added cap sleeves to this version and am quite pleased with the little extra touch of the ballerina tape finishing on the neckline.

Although this one's not for sale I'll be adding this to my Folksy shop as an example of commission possibilities. I'm always happy to discuss ideas so if you have any little people in your life and would like something created especially for them do get in touch!


  1. My daughter is the lucky recipient of this beautiful outfit - thanks Marie, you clever thing, you! xx

    1. I'm so glad you like it! Hopefully little one will enjoy it too, though it does mean no more nappy flashing which I've heard she's now quite partial to!
