she loves this one

Can you tell she loves this one? I’m soo glad she likes her new dress…I was wiped out after making it Sunday afternoon. This pregnancy is starting to take it’s toll!

Sorry about the mess on the floor…actually…no I’m not! lol. Take that. Sadie loves her play silverware. She’ll ignore the felt food and just play with that for hours. huh..

My favorite part of this dress are the straps..how they have a little knot for the closure. I liberally borrowed the idea for this dress from a little girl who had one like it at church this past week. I just had to make one during nap time that afternoon.

It also has a little sash that ties in back. aww! If I were to make it again, I would change the bodice a little bit, make it slightly narrower, and place the button holes higher. All in all, it turned out well for making a bodice pattern myself…with measurements taken while Sadie was soundly asleep. Thank goodness she’s more of a heavy sleeper these days. ;)

Here she is reading her FAVORITE book, Cinderella. We, uh…stole it from Grandma’s house. Sorry, Mom. We’ll give it back someday. Or maybe not.

Love her little crossed feet.

P.S. Who recognizes the skirt fabric? ;)
