Here is the little dress I made yesterday during nap time. I love the simplicity of the shape. It is just begging for ruffles or applique! Doug says it looks like a nightgown or a mu mu. So, I need some other opinions! I have a feeling it has a lot to do with the fabric, or at least I am hoping because it was such an easy pattern to sew! It is by Leila and Ben and I would like to sew a few of them to put in my little shop. The fabric is Heather Bailey's nicey jane line, which is one of my favorites. I bought this particular print to use in a quilt that I made for Adelaide and decided that I wasn't crazy about how it looked with the other prints I had chosen. Now I remember why, it is just a little grannyish. Oh well!
I made this dress for Adelaide but out of habit cut it a little too big. It is too big for Addie and a little small for Penelope. It will be great for Addie next summer though so I am ahead of the game! I finally talked Pippa into putting it on for a picture.
