2 Down, 5 to go.


This is my own pattern that took 2 1/2 yards of fabric.
So much fabric for such a little body!
I got it at the dollar/yard table (the fabric, not the little body).
The trim I got off ebay almost 10 years ago,
the buttons from my button stash that I just organized by color (yeah!)





This is Clover kissing the flower "like a Prince" according to Pearl.
She put up a fight as I tried to take her dress off for bedtime.

  28. Is there any chance you made a pattern for this dress? I am in love with it. Is it for sale?

  29. i have a huge crush on this dress, it is your sew sew button and i searched through all your archives until I found it. I can sew w/o a pattern, but I'm afraid to try w/o at least seeing it in person. Do you sell this pattern, or do you have a tutorial for something similar? Or any tips on how to recreate it?
