Okay, do you love her face better or the dress???? This is the same Sandi Henderson Claire pattern used here. The pattern was so easy and cute and fun, I decided to make a dress for Sophie out of the leftover fabric from a quilt I recently finished (you will see this soon...). This line was probably my favorite of last year. It is called House by Annette Tatum for Freespirit. So pretty and vintage. Blues and browns, and pinks and browns...LOVE IT!
I just added a little pinafore to this by serging it into the waistband. I cute a simple rectangle, did a rolled hem around the edges, and sewed on two strips of ric rac. Was not any harder, but much cuter, I think I will add one to any more of these dresses I make.
The fabrics in this line are so soft and sweet. Vintage florals, ticking stripes, sweetest colors LOVE!
Just a little close of of the top. The elastic thread is magical, the shirring is SO simple, check out Sandi Hendersons blog for an easy how-to.
A good supply of binky's is what makes this little girl happy. What could be better? I wonder how long it will take her to completely destroy this dress....hmmm, don't underestimate this little pip squeaks power!
