Ishi Dress

The perfect scenario for pictures and... BUMMM the kids ruined it! Not in the mood for pictures, not even with all the possible bribery they changed their grumpy faces! 
It was the Baptism of their tinny cousin so they had to dress accordingly! By whatever coincidence the major part of the important events on Teresinha's life she goes in a Straight Grain pattern LOL! Funny right? And it's not even planned... (check here her Baptism dress and here her 1 year old dress).

This time it's the recently released Ishi Dress, I love it! I have been stalking An for the dress since the day I saw it. Teresinha is short so I made a size 1 height and a size 2 width (can you notice that impressive belly?!?). At the time only the version with the invisible zipper was available, but I did it with buttons, I prefer buttons for little ones, so I'm glad An decided to go ahead with that version too.
They got so many compliments from everyone, I was really proud! 
Little Giant's shirt is the pattern Q from this book. Upcycled from dad's shirt with the stand up collar in the same liberty fabric from Teresinha's dress, although it's very difficult to see in the pictures.
Fabric is from the recently opened The Craft Company in Cascais. It's good I don't live in the same country otherwise I would get ruined in no time!

O cenário perfeito para fotografias e... BUMMM as crianças estragaram tudo! Nao estavam viradas para fazer de modelos e nem todos os subornos possiveis funcionaram!
Foi o Baptizado do primo pequenino, tinham que ir vestidos de acordo com a ocasiao! Por qualquer coincidencia que nao consigo explicar, pois nada foi planeado, a Teresinha tem usado os moldes da Straight Grain nos eventos especiais da vida dela (vestido de Baptizado aqui e vestido quando vez 1 ano aqui)
Esta vez fiz-lhe o molde mais recente da An, o Ishi Dress, adoro! Andei a presseguir a An desde que vi este vestido pela primeira vez. A Teresinha e baixota por isso fiz o tamanho 1 de altura e o tamanho 2 de largura (já repararam no exagero do tamanho daquela barriga?!?). Na altura que fiz o vestido apenas existia a versao com fecho invisivel, mas eu fiz com butoes. Gosto mais de botoes para pequeninos, fico contente que a An tenha decidido incluir essa opçao tambem.
Receberam tantos elogios de toda a gente, fiquei mesmo orgulhosa! A camisa do Pequeno Gigante é o molde Q deste livro. Reciclagem de uma camisa antiga do Pai com o colarinho do mesmo tecido Liberty do vestido da Teresinha, mas é dificil ver nas fotografias. 
O tecido é da recente inaugurada The Craft Company em Cascais. Ainda bem que nao vivo no mesmo país, caso contrario ia a ruina num instante!
