I made the little purse first a couple weeks ago and loved the color combo so much I wanted to make a coordinating dress. I just happened to have some cotton/lycra jersey in the right shade of lilac to go with the print! Yippy! And what really got the wheels turing in my head were the 3 gray flowers. I had made them (out of eco felt) with the intention of making more purses. They were just sitting on my work table and inspiration struck! I love it when it all comes together like that!!

As always, I drafted all the patterns for this. I went with a straighter line to the dress this time, instead of an a-line. I made 3/4 length bell sleeves. I love the way they drape and move.

Anyhoo...here are the pics! I think I will dress her in this for Thanksgiving.....just have to come up with something for blondie now....

I love this pic, though it appears she is missing an arm! EEK!

Oh the drama....


Began teaching myself to sew and design in Aug '09...one dress at a time!

That is super fabulous. What a lucky daughter you have Smiley

Guardie for life.

I am really interested in doing a personal swap, especially for greener things like reusable lady items, wool dryer balls, or other such things.  I can knit, sew, draw, and put things together in pretty neat ways.  Please PM me if you're interested.

Sooo cute! Curly looks adorable, even when sulking  Cheesy

She also looks like she has lippy on in the first pic. How freaking lucky to have such a lovely natural colour to her lips!

You twins and your sewing are always a pleasure to see Smiley That you design it all yourself is amazing.
