Little Orange Dress

In December 2014 when I was just 18 months old, my Nanny made me a dress out of soft and squishy Sublime Soya cotton yarn. The pattern sizing wasn’t very specific but she made me a size 12 – 24 months and since I was exactly in between those sizes, this little dress should have fitted me perfectly. But it didn’t. She had got a bit carried away with the length so it was too long and it almost feel off my shoulders. Never mind, my Mummy put it away in my wardrobe until I grew a bit more.

And then I grew and grew. My Mummy remembered this dress and got it out of my wardrobe and let me try it on. I am two and a half years old now and it fits! Yay! And it has pockets. Look, I can put my hands in my pockets and pull my dress up! My Mummy told me not to do this as it might stretch my dress. But my Nanny said I can do it.

And then my Mummy got out the giant bubble maker for me to play with. I think she did this to stop me stretching my dress.

Oh no. My Mummy can make giant bubbles for me using these sticks and the big string but it is a bit too hard for me.
