Little Dress for Little Ella

The third installment from my shibori dyed fabric is a little Tashenka dress for my little niece Ella. I had to alter the original Tashenka design as babies have bellies (convex waist, not concave!). The dress is tiny as Ella is 4.5 months old and it was a pleasure to make as I love her and it took me no time. Talk about getting a quick boost from such simple productivity!

Funny how the ambient lighting changes the color changes so much. The fabric on the floor is with natural morning light. 2nd photo was lit with indoor lamp lighting.

Lesson learned on this project:

Babies heads are very large in proportion to their bodies! I have no children as yet but geez, you’d think a nurse would have picked up on this important detail! Her mother Nika snipped a slit and altered the oval collar into a lovely deep v-neck.

  1. She’s so cute! These are the first photos I’ve seen since Mishiel & David went down in June. You’re awfully productive in your sewing, too – when do you have time to work and study? Keep it up! Love, Sheila
