She would be happy to wear a dress every day. So naturally she was rather upset when I put away all the summer clothes leaving her with only two dresses to wear. Pulled out my ever favorite GYCT Holly and Ivy dress pattern and made this for her. I love it. I went up a few sizes on the sleeves so they'd be fuller and put elastic in at the wrists. It also has a 3 inch hem so fingers crossed she'll be able to wear it again next fall.
The Handmaiden's Cottage has started doing occasional vintage dress pattern sew a longs. Naturally I MUST join. This time I actually got one whipped up during the sew a long unlike the last one. She may never wear it again but fingers crossed one of her sisters will....
My mom made Baby's dress and doesn't remember what pattern. I made the bonnet and dont' remember what pattern either!
Not impressed with sister pushing the buggy. Sister's dress is from Bugaboutique.
Rather proud of the embroidery on the brim of her bonnet. Other fun tidbit about baby's outfit is she's wearing shoes that were my cousin's, purchased in Germany when my uncle was stationed there 30 years ago. My cousin passed them on to me knowing I'd greatly appreciate them. :)
Tried a new pattern designer: JillyAtlanta. How darling is this set?! My poor baby has come down with mystery spots....some sort of allergic reaction to an allergic reaction they assume. They don't cause her any pain, but oh my poor baby!
Pattern is Flora Bundle from JillyAtlanta. I used some lovely vintage fabric for the bodice.
I enjoyed sewing the girls Easter dresses this year.
Violette Field Threads Annabelle bodice with just a plain skirt as the fabric was fabulous on its own.
You might recognize the outfit below from when I tested for EYMM. It's the same outfit my eldest wore for that photo shoot. Top is an EYMM patter and skirt is from a vintage pattern.
Used Sofilantjes Brueram dress pattern for This dress. Was not very happy that you can't see the cross over on the skirt and wish the skirt was fuller. It hit her at an odd length too, but that's probably because she's short.
