A Long, Long, Twirly Dress

Okay, I'll get to the dress in a minute, but can I first acknowledge how beautiful she is???? Those eyes! Just gorgeous. Anyway, I made Natalie this dress today and she really loves it. I got this fabric some time ago for $2 a yard and a Butterick pattern for $1.99. Can't beat that, eh? Anyway, it came together really fast, despite poorly written instructions. I cut it out last night and sewed it today between an emergency trip to Target because we ran out of diapers and a major bubble bath catastrophe. The wet hair and red eyes are both due to the latter :)

On a side note, I came across a brand new blog dedicated to kids art and craft ideas. It's called The Crafty Crow, if you'd like to take a look.


  1. You did a great job on the dress. I really hate sewing with patterns. Why do they always make everything harder then it has to be? Love that you got such a great deal too. It's even more fun when you know you created something for practically nothing!


  2. The dress and your cutie are both beautiful! thanks for your comment on my bag. i am really impressed with your diaper bag that you designed, all those details! (that's why I never do diaper bags anymore)

  3. The dress AND the model are adorable!

  4. That dress is perfectly adorable (as is the bloodshot model)! Aren't you going to share the pattern number? (pleeease)
