Here is the recent project that has absolutely consumed all my time. This little dress is for my newest niece Alice, or Allie for short. With a name like that, how could I resist making an Alice in Wonderland costume for Halloween? While I was at it, why not make it work for two different occasions hence the blue and yellow version. Two outfits in one!
For this dress I used Simplicity pattern number 5279 (with a few added touches of my own.) I'd really like to share them with you now, but my little one has just awoken EARLY from a nap! Fooey. So in the next coming days look for tutorials on the pintucked bodice, the freezer paper stenciled bird, and the ruffled pinafore cap sleeves.
