Whn Nyla was 18 months I bought her the CUTEST outfit you ever saw for Easter.

but when we got to church 3 other lil girls had on the same dress!!  Being the diva mom I can be I was heated!  LOL. That was the day I got serious about sewing!  My baby would wear things you just couldn't find in stores (for events and special occasions, anyway)! 

Well I had in mind an Easter outfit for her.  Had the fabric and everything, but a week before I punked out and bought a dress on Ebay!  I was too swamped and busy sewing other stuff and tried to make  this the night before Easter.  I conked out at 2am and said forget it!  I finally finished it last night and she tried it on this morning.

It was my own drafted pattern.  I stepped outside my comfort zone of sewing with mostly woven cottons and tackled ravelly, annoying silk!  It was worth it, even though there are wispy purple strands all over my house! She loves it!

Here's what she actually wore.  Beautiful dress and actually better suited for current Michigan weather!  I got so many compliments and folks asking me did I make it that I'm thinking about re-creating it in another color scheme! Perhaps turquoise brown and white or go Tiffany style and do turquoise black and white!

Your daughter is adorable and she obviously loves her new dress. I like it too! Nice work. I really like the shirring on the back of the bodice, great idea. I'm sure it makes the dress easy to get on and off and will allow a growing girl to wear for more than a few months.

The other dress is cute as well and your daughter sure knows how to work it for the camera  Cheesy

Beautiful!  Did you make the second dress as well??  They are both gorgeous.  I don't think I would tackle the silk, but that second one looks like something I could possibly do with a pattern and lots of good directions!  I love the shirring on the purple one, too.

WHAT a charmer! And the princess dress is so pretty. She can wear it all summer!

Your daughter is absolutely adorable!

You did a great job on the purple dress! I've been sewing for about 7 years and I haven't tried to tackle silk yet. I'm afraid I'd mess it up.  Sad

The dresses are adorable. I love them both, but I have to say the Neapolitan dress with the way you did her hair...omg, you know how to rock a look on your little angel there!
