My middle daughter is pure "girl." When she was a baby I used to call her "Queen Jasmine" because she was a very high-maintenance infant. Even now, she likes to have things just so. She loves anything pink, anything with ruffles, and only wants to wear dresses and skirts. I made this little jumper a couple months ago, and although it is obviously a couple sizes too big, she has been begging me to let her wear it and of course, she wanted me to take some pictures. You can see her sass in this first shot.
(You might notice some orange paint on the front of the dress from her little craft activity today:)
I couldn't believe my luck when I found this fabric at JoAnn's. It is zebra corduroy! How friggin' cute is that?? The inside just has a facing, but I wish I would have fully-lined it. I forget what pattern I used, so I will have to get back to you, but I remember it being a super quick project. It is only two pieces, front and back, has facing like I just mentioned, and then two button holes. I put on some purple heart-shaped buttons and called it a day! I believe there is supposed to be a panel on the bottom for contrast and length, but I left it off. Anyway, it is successful because she loves it and I know she is going to wear this until it wears out:)
I recently purchased another Violette Field Threads pattern for the Stella dress.
I posted about the Vivienne Skirt a couple weeks ago here. I am actually making 3 Stella dresses, one for each of my girls and they are coming out so darn cute, I can hardly take it. Here is a little sneaky peak.
It is a simple one-shoulder dress with a ruffle in front and a gathered skirt. So simple, yet so beautiful. If you haven't checked out their patterns, just take a gander. The patterns are classic and all the instructions are explicit and perfect for beginners. (Just so you know, they don't even know I exist and I'm not getting anything out of promoting them! I just really think their patterns are special).
I put in the zipper on the pale pink dress and have to do the same for the other two. Hopefully I can finish these up tomorrow and post pics of them being modeled! Well, all for now. Off to listen the pretty sounds of rain on the gutters. Hope you all enjoy your weekend!
