Oh she is adorable, and in so much more in grab. I think you did a wonderful job on her grab. I'm making grab for little ones myself, can't seem to find anything really for them.
   I like the colors you've used, they go together wonderfully.

jeannebaby1 if you are just going for the day I highly suggest a pixie costume or something of that nature. The kiddos can get behind it and its a lot cooler for the middle of the day in the heat. These costumes will get used for early morning and evening when things cool off and get cold.

Also I will be posting updated pics of all of these things as I am/have added trim to them both.

Oh i meant at the faires you don't see many if any clothing for wee-ones.
   I make the wee-ones clothing myself, never had a problem too luckly. Parents seemed happy with it and no fusses for anyone. Thanks though, it was nice of you to say.
   And no kiddies after nights, parents just do the day runs.

Popping in since LadyLanalla couldn't remember where the original picture that inspired these dresses was: http://modehistorique.com/elizabethan/images/kids/holbkid.jpg It's a picture of Hans Holbein The Younger's daughter. Her outfit was so sweet and simple. I like how her whispy hair is braided from the back and pull up over her head with string.

We were surprised by the short sleeves! I always thought long sleeves, but here they are!

ETA - The dress is German - you know, since Hans Holbein The Younger was German.  Roll Eyes

From looking at the portrait, it is a casual setting, probably at home.  The dress on the toddler appears to fasten in the front, there is no indication of lacing, so I suspect hooks/eyes.  The skirt does not appear to be open to the hem, but appears to have a seam closing the front of the skirt that begins a couple of inches below the waistline.  This would make it easier to get a squiggly child in and out of the dress.  Given the short sleeves of the chemise, I suspect this could have been worn with an overdress. 

The dress itself is a common style for the period.  There  are plenty of example of these "Ren jumpers" in Italian art.  They are adorable and one of my favorite styles.  And while a toddler may  get away with running around with their shift showing as an underskirt, I have seen far to many grown ladies doing the same.  And I have not seen any thing that supports that was done in period.

So I finally finished the pink tabbed overdress! It is fully reversible

Here she is wearing it with the short sleeved chemise.


This is it in reverse...


And here is my angel in her chemise alone! SCANDALOUS!


What do you think? C&C Welcome

First, your daughter is beautiful! Smiley

You did some really fine work on her gowns. I agree with the others who said she will be one of the best dressed littles at the Faire!

I just wish it were easier getting her to smile for the camera. She and my camera have thos love hate relationship. She loves playing with the camera (which is a no no), and the camera REFUSES to take the picture while she is smiling. It always delays just a second too long. I swear. You have to precognitiant to get a photo of my daughter smiling with my camera. Of the nearly 3000 photos I have of my daughter dating back to her birth moment I have maybe 50 with her smiling in.

Excluding the trim I added (as you can see by the photos) to hide some wiggly stitching. They were really easy to do. Is any one interested in a tute? Or no...
