Well I knew I'd be making another Geranium dress soon, since the last one turned out so cute! I started cutting this one out last week and totally messed up laying out my pieces. (this is why I shouldn't be allowed to sew after 9 pm...so pathetic) So I ordered another yard because I just HAD to make it work. I mean, hello this fabric is probably among my favorites I've sewn with! Ever.
(It's Lotta Jansdotter Ball & Leaves in Schooner, from my sponsor Lily Bella Fabrics!)
I went with some mustard yellow covered buttons-love how that turned out! Although Charlotte tried her best to convince me to use green.
I love love love the front cut out. I can't rave enough about this pattern! I haven't even tried the flutter sleeves or different neckline options yet! I cut out a 3T for Sadie...Rae's finished garment measurements are spot on. I did lengthen the skirt about an inch and a half since my girly seems to be sprouting up!
The Sadester is equally in love with it. She called it "BEautiful" " Spinny" and "awesome!"
She also couldn't find the pockets for awhile. She told me with a sad face," Sorry Mom....I don't think you can take a picture of me with my hands in my pockets." Me: "why not?" Sadie: " I can't find them!" I guess they were pretty well hidden in the pleats...lol!
She looks so grown up in these pictures! I can't believe how much she's grown lately, too. Get ready for a slew of new dresses for her since she only fits about 3 of them right now! (and we all know that's not nearly enough)
Sadie styled herself for this last pic. Why do I even try? Obviously she has talent in this department!
