pretty in peplum polka dot dress

pretty in peplum polka dot dress \\sewn by craftiness is not optional

So psyched to be a part of the Pretty in Peplum blog tour!

I couldn’t wait to sew up this dress. Charlotte has a similar one from H&M and I always meant to copy it for the other girls, and then Abby went and made this awesome pattern.

I’ve said it once, I’ll say it again, I love when people do the hard work for you. ūüėČ

Anyways! We also got to choose our fabric from my favorite online knit shop-Girl Charlee!

I chose this cute white and black polka dot ponte de roma knit. It’s a great weight for this pattern.

I made a 5T and the size is pretty spot on!

I feel like the waist is a teensy bit low on Sadie, but she will probably sprout up soon and it will fit perfectly.

She grows UP only, and even then not that often.

I chose the elbow length sleeves, LOVE them.

Somehow my 6 year old looks like a pre-tween. Pre-teen? Tween? ahhh!

stop growing up! Just 1/2 hour after this shoot she lost one of her top front teeth.

Then another 3 days later. That’s 4 she’s lost so far! My big first grader.
