Suffolk Puff Dress

Here it is!

I guess this photo looks pretty much exactly like the last photo. but it is not the same! it is now completely finished! yay!

It was fun to invent and to make. It has 126 suffolk puffs. The two top rows are supposed to be like a band around the chest and the bottom 6 rows have two pleats, one in the front and one in the back to make it puff out like a skirt. It will be interesting to see how well it fits and hangs, so Dusty, I would love your feedback and maybe a photo so that everyone can see what it looks like when it is worn?

I am worried that it could look a little boxy because thats just how suffolk puffs hang when sewn together but then my sister pointed out to me that kids look cute in anything so It should be alright. She's right isn't she, you could dress a little kid in a plastic bag and he/she's look cute...not that I suggest you dress your children in plastic bags...kids and plastic don't mix!

For my next trick, I am going to try making a little kids plush ball using something like a soccer ball pattern. All out of suffolk puffs of course and with a little bell inside of it for Beatrice to play with.

Remember, if you want something original made for you out of suffolk puffs for a child, just send me a comment telling you what you want or describe your child (boy/girl/age/fave colours, etc) and I'll invent something for them.

This is not a competition, this is just something that I feel like doing, so if you ask, you shall receive. I will make a present for your child and post it for FREE! But I would like some feedback in return on how you think the item turned out, how it fit, any suggestions to make it better etc etc, and I would love a photo too of your child wearing it. I want to be able to use the photo on this blog and on etsy so please think about whether or not you really want me to use an image of your child on the Internet before you put in your order.
