Hello! We’ll get back to lady sewing real soon, but first I had to share some birthday dresses with you. Each year I make a special dress for my girls, and my little one just turned three- here is her dress:Fabric: Tsuru by Rashida Coleman Hale for Cloud9
The pattern is the Geranium Dress from Made By Rae- you can’t go wrong with her patterns, they are all gems. My girls are tiny, so based on the measurements in the pattern I made the width 12-18 months, and the length 2T. The fit is perfect! It is an easy pattern to follow, as with all of Rae’s designs the instructions are great and filled with pictures to illustrate each step. I love the little flutter sleeves:
And the buttons in the back 🙂I thought it would be fun to look back on her previous birthday dresses…2 years old- This one is my own design, and the fabric is a Heather Ross double gauze1 year old- design based on this free pattern, fabric is a Nani Iro double gauze
And last but not least, I made a dress for big sister too!This one is also from the Geranium pattern, made in a 2T width and 4T length…what can I say, they are little string beans. The fabric is another from the Tsuru line, I love it!
OK! I am working on some fun projects right now- a casual t-shirt dress (of which I want to make at least 5 versions!), a Staple dress, a Washi dress I cut out almost a year ago, and a Saltspring dress. I figured I should crank out some summer projects while we still have some left, and I am saving the jeans and blazers for Fall…
