My New Favorite Dress

The girl who said she won't wear dresses......wore a dress! I've had an idea to do this peasant style dress with a tie neckband instead of elastic, but hadn't done it since my 4 year old says, she doesn't like dresses. But recently she's been more agreeable with clothing, so I gave it a shot.....

Sorry about the photo quality, I've been having issues with taking photos in low light lately....which will hopefully be resolved when I get my new digital-SLR this weekend. An early b-day present to myself!

I think it looks really cute. I did have to bribe her to get the photos, and she got a little upset putting it on....a little tight in the chest. But when she got to school this morning, there were many oohs and ahhs from her little friends.

This is my new favorite dress to sew, so.....we'll see how long I can keep the little one off the dress boycott.


  1. so cute! i love the simple style and the butterflies. :)

  2. Oh, I like it! What pattern are you using? I just bought some similar fine-wale corduroy for a dress for my daughter and this dress you've made looks a lot less fiddly to sew than the Oliver + S pattern I was eyeing.

  3. Hi again Ruby! Thanks for dropping by my blog and for the pattern info...I just figured I'd comment again over here so you'd be sure to know I am grateful! :-) Looking forward to following your sewing adventures in the future.

  4. I like the pattern of the fabric. I am your newest follower. I am having so much fun hopping around looking at your work.
