pink posy dress

So Sadie has seen this dress hanging up on my craft room wall for awhile. It was supposed to be for Charlotte, and I was being lazy on the taking-pictures-part of blogging. So I (finally) go to try the dress on C, and it’s HUGE on her. Both Sadie and I bust out laughing, as does Charlotte, and then Sadie says,”Is that for me now Mommy?” Sure thing, darlin’. And what do you know? It fit her great! A tad short, so it’s more tunic than dress on her.
It’s your basic peasant/shirt dress, only I  reused the cuffs from the original sleeves. Tricky, eh? Well, maybe not tricky per say, but they turned out pretty cute.
It’s a fun top that will transition easily to fall/winter clothing. EEK. Are we already almost there? crazy how time flies.

  12. Adorable! I usually have the opposite problem of making something or the big one and having it end up on the baby because I guess I suck at measuring.

  13. Cute, cute, cute!!!

  14. Glad the dress can go to good use and you don’t have to wait a few years until it fits Charlotte! ha. LOVE the reuse of the cuff. I’m totally going to try that.

  21. Would you happen to have a lovely tutorial for this darling tunic?

    • I don’t, sorry 🙂 I think I used a basic peasant dress-probably the Sweet Dress by Leila and Ben…or MADE has a shirt-to-dress tutorial as well. 🙂
