    So, I made a right pig’s ear of the whole collar bit of this pattern! The collar didn’t want to go on correctly, didn’t match up where it should on neckline, the curves looked completely different. I think I was just not careful or accurate enough with my cutting out and stitching curves. I eventually wrestled it into submission and it’s on- though sulking a bit and refusing to match exactly where it should at the back. And no, I am NOT taking it off again, I just won’t let people stand behind my granddaughter. Any tips for next time, ladies? Oh yeah- and I had to use a million pins to practically put dress together before I could work out how to attach bodice to back skirt. At one point, my granddaughter was going to have to wear the skirt inside out at the back and right side out at the front if I hadn’t stopped for a cup of tea and a much needed shortbread biscuit.

    Its a favourite of mine but it does require concentration.

    So worth it though, so terribly cute.

    Thanks Nicole. I want to make it again, because it is cute, you’re right, so I’ll watch your tutorial. Just wondering about our time differences- it’s quarter to ten in the morning here, so I sort of presumed you would be in bed in Australia?

    Oh she’s like a little doll! Not watched the tutorial yet because I stopped at the picture of her in that lovely red version.

    She is a little Dote, isn’t she?

    Thank you!

    It’s so odd, isn’t it? Here we are, in our different parts of the world, “talking” to each other about sewing for our offspring.

    Your tutorial is very helpful, Nicole. I’ll watch it again next time just before I make my second Puppet Show.
