Well, ok, maybe mommy just needed the perfect excuse to make another sweet dress for my Little Bit! :) Since she absolutely loves elephants right now and since we were going to the zoo with our friends and since I had found this ADORABLE fabric that I just couldn't resist....
This sweet print is part of the Playdate collection by Dear Stella. I first saw it in this beautiful quilt by Kimberly Jolly from the Fat Quarter Shop.
I looked through all my sweet girly patterns to find the one that was just right for this fabric.....and found what I think was just perfect! :) This is the Polkadots & Summer pattern from Fig Tree & Co.
This was a spur of the moment sewing project with tots at my feet, so I can't offer a fair review of the pattern this time, but will definitely make this gorgeous dress again with better focus so I can.
I love the way it turned out!
The pleating is one of my favorite parts, I just love the finish it offers.
She got lots of compliments at the zoo too. ;)
And if you are on our facebook page, you saw that I of course had the perfect little label from Night Owl's Menagerie to finish it off. :)
I have so much fun sewing for my kiddos! It's easy to get carried away. :)
Hope you are having as much fun sewing for your family this month as I am!
