Very Girlie

Thanks so much for all your sweet thoughts on Anna's favorite little outfit. I have decided to leave it as it, and put it away. All your comments made me excited to make her a new dress.

I made her this dress for her birthday that is coming up. Action shots will follow, but for now it has to stay in hiding.


I used Barefoot Roses fabric, which I love so much. It is so beautiful and bright. The pattern is Simplicity 2994. There are so many options to this pattern that I just love.


That is the back view of the dress. I love it because it just ties around the neck, then around the torso, no snaps or buttons.



It is such a girlie dress with the flowers, pink, bows and ruffles, but I do love it. I hope she will too.

Adorable. I love pinks and greens as a combo. Last summer I made my first tiered skirt and it was so hard! Now that I got the hang of it s not so bad but alot work. Have a great weekend-

So sweet. Both outfits are very sweet. Ainslee has a red Batik dress (purchased, not hand made) very similar in pattern/ style and she has worn it for two years now. I hope your little girly-girl gets as much wear out of hers.

I wish my little girl was young enough to make dresses like this for her. Shes 17 next week and I can't believe where those years have gone.

I absolutely love the dress. It's just so great. I keep meaning to work on some stuff for my little one before she gets too big. Guess I better get on it. Congrats.
