I made her an Ice Cream dress, in size 12-18 months. I've made 3 of the tops previously, and they go together so nicely, with all the seams either enclosed or finished.
I used a really cute Robert Kaufman print from their Urban Circus line. I really like it with the green - I used corduroy - and the gift recipient is a blond, blue eyed adorable baby, so I think these colors will look great. This was the first time I made the dress, and I think I put together the hem facing upside down, and I didn't notice the instruction to understitch the facing.
Next up was another one, this time for Julia. I'm trying really hard to consider what she'll actually wear, as opposed to what I think I'd like her to wear. At this point, she really doesn't want to wear pants. Or even leggings. Or t-shirts. Only pretty dresses. That's the bottom line.
I made this one out of an absolutely screaming print I've had in my stash forever. It's from Alexander Henry, and I know I've had it for about 10 years. I actually love the detail in the print, but even I have to admit it's pretty screaming. I paired it with a red corduroy, but after I actually put it on my child, I realize that the red is too much of an orange red. So, next time, I'll seek out a more blue toned red. This is a 2T with 3T length. No notches in the neck or pockets, cause, I'm lazy sometimes.
Still, when I finished it, she put it on with absolutely no fight, and cooperated with me taking photos. Success!!
I had a hard time with the levels in the photos because it was a pretty gray day, and the red and all the other colors were really bold. Still, I like the way the photos came out - especially since the kid was cooperative.
We really don't get a lot of rain around here, so she got a chance to do one of her favorite thing....jump in muddy puddles! (We're big Peppa Pig fans around here...)
