The white dress is a wee bit small for Lucy - so I had to make another slightly larger. She's in a size 3 already! When did that happen? I'm soo in love with this little dress!
It's 25 below zero today, so it should be called frostbite dress. Any ideas on names for the new pattern?
|Can you see how small it is? Uber-constricting for an almost 3 year old!|
Who loves polka dots? This is my favorite version!
It's also Hattie's first birthday today! It seems very fitting that she was born on a -21 degree day and her first birthday is on a -25 degree day! It may be cold outside but we can't get enough of her sunny personality! She's already a charmer!
Fellow sewists - advice?
You might notice that from the first version of the dress to the polka dot version I changed a bit. I wanted the collar to be more prominent and I changed the sleeves to a cap sleeve. I think it looks much better. I added the apron for fun, but then I had to add a side zipper - yech. I'm still wondering if I even need the darts on the front of the dress. Loose dresses look ok on little girls, right? What are your opinions on darts for little girls and/or side zippers?
