Sweet Little Dress

made from this pattern by Leila and Ben. It's an instant download after you pay for it which is something I love! Can't get that on etsy. When cutting out the dress, I cut the size 5 but the length I cut for a 12 month old so it's more a shirt.
Fabric is a silky cotton by Moda. I think it was from the Seaside Rose line around 2004. And in case it doesn't show well, it's a very pale pink and white gingham. I used clear elastic in the casing. I like it much better than traditional woven elastic for this.


I didn't make it for my Emily-she's just modeling it. I made if for the other Emilee. If I can get a photo of her in it I'll post. Emilee likes all things pink and girlie. I added the bows to make it extra sweet.


Emily and Ava playing and not fighting! Ava wanted that shirt off at one point during the pictures. So that should answer your question Kelly as to whether she wants her clothes off in public:) And that shirt was the one Emily wore to bed last night. Ava wants everything Emily has.

Ok, first...the picture of AVA as your header is absolutely WONDERFUL. It made me laugh. As for the dress, I love it and want one for me. I think I would love to wear something like that over capris with sandals. LY..JennyBean

You're right, the bows definitely add extra cuteness to the top. :) I like the pics of the girls playing and having a good time outside. I'm glad they were able to enjoy the weather, since it didn't rain like it threatend to do almost all day.
And I can't believe you put Ava's stink eye as the header...ok I can, bc it's really cute and funny hehehe.

I LOVE the shirt I am thinking I might need one in my size! Though I don't think it will look as cute on me as her!
