ric rac dress for Charlotte

 Well, I had some of that lovely fabric leftover from Sadie’s dress, so of course I had to make a little matchy-matchy dress for little sis Charlotte! I made it slightly similar (the sleeves and buttons) but a different style at least.
It’s basically a Charlotte dress with a Circle skirt attached. Pretty straight-forward! The headband is a tee shirt headband, and the flower is just some felt cut and glued together to a clip.
I wanted to put some ric rac around the front at the waist, but I was out of the aqua and didn’t want to wait to finish the dress.
I’m somewhat a speed seamstress-if it can’t be done within a nap time or two, I lose interest. Seriously. Guess I should work on my patience. lol!
I love how the circle skirt hangs-so pretty!
And here are the sister dresses side by side. What cuteness. 
 Here’s a quick shot I got before church yesterday.
Sadie was pretty much ecstatic that Charlotte was matching her. She loves matching colors and things lately-like she get super excited if the food she’s eating matches her shirt. What a silly cookie! love it.
I’ll be posting the ric rac dress tutorial tomorrow! see you then. :o)

  18. I too have to have crafts done in a nap or 2. very cute dresses! I’m scared of doing sleeves – but am going now to take a look at your tutorial, maybe I’ll brave them!

  19. Do you promise C is for real? Because in that “finger in the mouth” pose, she totally looks like a really cute version of those “lifelike babies” you see for sale in magazines. Are you sure you aren’t making 5 easy payments of 19.95?

    um, the dress is adorable per usual too. i bet the nursery workers at church flipped out :)

  20. Um, could this be any cuter?! (The answer is no, by the way…) Darling! I think I’m going to have to go fabric hunting (as if I need a reason, ha ha) to make a dress for my little! Eeeeep! SO cute!

  21. I love those dresses, and Charlotte’s “thoughtful” pose, but most of all…THOSE CHEEKS! Ohmyword, she is so adorable.

  22. Cutest girls ever! Seriously they could not be cuter in those dresses.

  23. Oh my goodness, those are some adorable little dresses! Your girls are SO adorable. I have two little girls, it is so much fun!

  24. Ummm hello….cutest kids ever!! Now I feel terrible because I have kids of my own lol but wow your girls sure do look gorgeous in their little dresses x
