So she is about to be 7, and will be by the event (so hard believe!!!). I love making little girl things, full of tucks and little frills, they make me smile! Its like making a dress on the half scale, and so much fun! The last dress I made her was over 3 years ago, it was a very pretty pink plaid with some blue trim, very simple and very pretty, she has now obviously outgrew it!
Pink DressI have let her be a part of the process. I pulled out fabric from the stash that I had bought years ago with the intention of making her more little things, but they never went any farther than a nice pile of fabric! Since she is a bit more grown up, I do not have enough fabric to make a dress out of some of the choices, but I gave her the option to choose her pinafore fabric. There were three options, one was a cut off from my favorite work dress (brown with pink flowers), one was leftover pink from her first dress, the other was a green/brown plaid. Can you guess what she chose? The pink plaid! I can't wait to get started on her projects!
So far the lists consists of
- Tucked petti
- Pinafores (maybe 2)
- Sunbonnet- already started!
Luckily I do not have to buy any fabric for her garments, but I will have to get some white for the unders. I have already started her bonnet, using leftovers from one of my own sun bonnets (we'll match- HOW CUTE!) . I did cord the brim of hers rather than make it a slat, since little ones seem to have issues with slats sticking out in front of them.
Yellow Sunbonnet in progress
