Among the things I love are:
1) eyelet lace
2) bright colours.
So when I saw these beautiful colours of oversized eyelet lace (Oversized eyelet lace! Even better!), I couldn't resist. I also bought some bright yellow, which will get made into something for my daughter .... or maybe for me! And I resisted buying the green, but it was a challenge.
But I loved the way the pink and blue looked together so I thought I would make my daughter a dress. She currently has a lovely fancy dress my mother-in-law made her, and she rarely has much occasion to wear fancy stuff, so I thought I would make her something she could wear more regularly in the summer. This eyelet fabric is cotton and washable, and I lined it with matching cottons underneath.

I used the Lizzy Dress Pattern by Shwin Designs. Unfortunately, I made it a size too big, as you can see in the pictures! She's growing so fast I didn't want it to be too small, but I overestimated!
