Two in One

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.

OOOOH! So sweet! I cannot WAIT for the tutorial. I'm working up the courage to make Ruby Jane's first dress. I'm a novice, but I have a vision. That must count for something right? :o) I will be using yoru tutorial for sure...and maybe begging for some help! :o)

Holy Canolli!! That is gorgeous and to smart to make it into 2 dresses. You are amazing with the sewing machine.
You pop out things left and right, how do you have the time?!
