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!!
