Dressmaking: the small childs Matilda dress Burda 9424

Honestly, there's not a lot to say about this. I didn't enjoy it one bit. The pattern is rubbish. I just ignored it because it was very very unhelpful. I can't even be bothered to describe why, it just is.

As you can see I veered of script and added a gathered skirt, because it just looked wierd as ever so slightly a-line.

I had to line it, because this is curtain fabric and frays like a b*gger.

My automatic buttonholer seems to have a life of its own. It makes its own choices every single time. So the buttonholes are different lengths. The lady who purchased this has not mentioned it and neither have I.

No more clothes for other people or other peoples children. I mean it this time. I must be strong!
