A Dress for a Little Lucy Lady

 I'm sooo excited to share this sweet little dress I made!  I'm quite proud of myself...it's the most ambitious clothing pattern I've attempted without my mommy.  Although I did call her :)


She will most definitely fetch eggs in this sweet dress!  It is a little big but should be perfect size in a couple months.


I simply adore this fabric!!  It's from Pam Kitty Picnic.  I got it from a really sweet shop, Strawberry Blossom Mercantile...she's got lots of really sweet prints including Lecien and sweet florals.




Full dress.  Pleated at the top and back, peter pan collar and a double layer at the bottom.  The pattern called for ric-rac but it didn't match this sweet floral dress and luckily I found a matching periwinkle trim!


I love her.  And yes she was spinning in it!! :)  How sweet is my Lucy??  I'd also describe her as feisty, loving, playful, funny, curious.... She's almost 18 months old, I can hardly believe it.  Our family certainly wouldn't be the same without her.  And I sure love having my girl!


I used Simplicity Baby pattern 1921 (Joann's for 99 cents!).  I did the blue dress on the right.  As you can see it had a large collar.  I cut it out and I just didn't like it. It overpowered the dress maybe? Too heavy? Any way I asked some of my best sewing friends and decided on altering it to a Peter Pan collar. I'm very happy I did!


And I'm ready to make my next one.  No such things as too many dresses right?


Thank you for taking the time to read our blog!!  Have a great day!!

Your Lucy is just divine. I have a little girl 6months older than Lucy and just can't imagine not having her in my life. We are truly lucky. Now what would be even better would be to conquer my fear of dress sewing so I could make clothes for Little Miss L. You have inspired me. Thank you.
