My adorable Evie just turned 3 on July 1st.
She asked me so sweetly if I was going to make her
something for her birthday.....
How could I say no?
Since she love kitties,
I chose Michael Miller "Happy Hills Calico Cat" fabric
and paired it with some coordinating fabrics from my stash
as well as some pink gingham and bright polka dots.
I used "The Cupcake Dress" pattern by Pink Fig.
I love that the pattern comes with all the sizes
from 12m - 10 yrs!
The pattern was FTS (fun to sew)
The back of the bodice requires smocking
with elastic thread.
If you've never tried it,
don't be afraid to give it a go.
You'll be pleasantly surprised at how easy it is.
I just had to share a picture of the darling little dress shoes
that we bought for Evie as well.
They have tiny little 1/2" heals and beaded bows.
I love how tanned her legs are
and of course, the band-aid :)
Well the dress turned out to be a big hit.
She has worn it everyday for 4 days,
even sleeping in it and wearing those shoes to bed.
Makes my heart happy :)
