I finished my daughter's birthday dress just in time for her 2nd birthday!
|Bribed with stickers and singing Happy Birthday to her repeatedly. She's wearing a pink t-shirt under the dress because it was a little chilly.|
I used the Geranium dress pattern from Made By Rae. My little girl is so skinny I decided to make the bodice the 18-24m size, but keep the skirt in the 2T size. I could have gone done a size smaller even, but want her to have some room to grow!
|Buttons found at Hobby Lobby.|
The fabric is linen Ghost Wing in Aqua by Anna Maria Horner. I loooove the linen--it was light and easy to work with, and washed beautifully!
|My son insisted on posing with her. He was pretty jealous of all the birthday attention she was getting.|
The only thing I wish I had done differently is to make the cap sleeves instead of the flutter sleeves so the bodice butterfly wings would reach out a little further. But now that it's done it seems like a small thing to regret--plus the flutter sleeves are adorable!
