KCWC: modern meadow geranium

So…..the other day, I decided that Ava needed a new dress-basically I just NEEDED to sew something quick and cute and easy. Another Geranium dress goll darn fit the bill. It’s my sixth version of the pattern…yipes. That means it’s a good one. The classic silhouette and those adorable cap sleeves get me every time. Plus the fit is fantastic! Every time I make Ava one (this is her third…) it fits her perfectly. This time it was the 6-12 mo size…she was barely squeezing into her 3-6 mo Easter dress anymore (she’s our chubby baby and I LOVE it.)

I made it with this gorgeous Joel Dewberry fabric from his Modern Meadow line-from LilyBella Fabrics.
I paired it with a dusty blue sash that came off of an old pair of shorts of mine…I never wore it with the shorts but saved it. I think somehow my subconscious KNEW that I would need it to pair perfectly with this mustard yellow fabric. Meant to be.

She loves it. Totes. You can tell by the squealing face and heels about to kick up. Cause she TOTALLY cares about what she wears….

Anyways, I love it.

One more down for Kids Clothes Week!



  1. Oh my gosh, she is just so EDIBLE! And truly, that is a great pattern, I’ve got two more already ready to be sewn! Too bad my baby is super mobile- all my pictures of her in her mama made clothes are of blurry images of her running away from me.

  2. OMG! She’s the cutest. I knew the moment I saw it in the flickr pool that it was yours. Gorgeous job (surprise…uh, no!).

  3. The colours are gorgeous on her, and nothing makes me smile quite like a crawling baby in a dress that’s just long enough to prevent them from getting anywhere!

  4. I love it! I’m about to cut into some yellow and grey for my daughter too! ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. Adorable, as usual!

  6. She’s adorable! Love the dress! ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. She is just. so. cute! Those blue eyes, my word. The dress is of course as cute as can be too ๐Ÿ™‚ LOVE that print and the sash is such a cute addition. Love it all!

  8. Your darling adorable Ava looks absolutely gorgeous in anything and everything that her lovely mom sews up for her….Ava is a great model too. Thanks for sharing your pretty dresses…too bad that I cannot sew and my daughters are all teenagers now…maybe I will learn to sew when I am a grandmother!!!!

    Wishing you a great Sunday.
