Ladybug Birthday Dress

Birthday halter dress!

My daughter turned 3 a couple of weeks ago, so I made her another birthday dress!  You can see the first one here.

The only photo I have showing the side slit at the hem.

I used the Tallulah Halter pattern from Jennifer Paganelli's Girl's World book.  I let my daughter pick the fabric out of several from my stash.  She loves ladybugs!

The cross over bodice is so cute!

I made the size 2-3T (XS), and it is a bit gaping on my skinny girl.   The pattern had a few confusing spots, but generally came together smoothly.

I did comb her hair beforehand, she is a scruffy headed child!

 I would have shared this sooner, but this photoshoot (which required some bribing) is the only time she's worn it--and she took it off immediately afterwards.  I'm hoping she wears it more over the summer!

She knocked out that tooth in September, now we're just waiting for the adult one to come in (it'll be a few years...).


  1. What a cutie!! The dress is adorable, I bet you'll never be able to get her out of it this summer!

  2. Very adorable! Too bad it's not my size - I'd wear it for her. :D I'm sure she'll want to wear it when she warms up to the idea.

  3. Oh, Renee...that is SO ADORABLE! I can tell your daughter is so proud of her dress. Thanks for sharing on TGIFF!

  4. The dress is great, and Aurelia is and adorable model. I hope that the weather warms up and she warms up to the dress - those leggings are so perfect with it!

  5. What a sweet and adorable dress

  6. Ahhh this is the cutest! She doesn't look like she was bribed. ;)

  7. Cute dress on an even cuter young lady. Missed you at MQG.
