She loves her clothes

My daughter changes her clothes about six times a day. She especially loves pretty dresses. I have made her a lot of clothes. It has been a while though. When I saw this sweet top one day while I was visiting Chris, I had to get the pattern.


I finished the top in no time, and decided to make the dress too.

The details:
Pattern: Butterick See and Sew 5119
Fabric: I used Alexander Henry fabric for the top, and Amy Butler for the dress.
This is probably the quickest, easiest pattern I have ever made.
There will be more.

Adorable! I don't blame your little girl one bit...with all those sweet clothes you make her, I'd want to change 6 times a day, too, undecided over my favorite!

Wonderful fabrics and cute patterns. I've a friend with two little girls. I'll have to share your post with her should she want to make clothes for her girls, too!

Very very cute. I just brought fabric and patterns to make Jessie a bunch of tops and dresses - doesn't help that she is getting into bigger sizes and the clothes are getting more expensive to buy in the stores!
