Sweetheart Dress

Hope you all had a very good Mother's Day!!

And this is the other dress (if you want to know what I mean by ‘other’ check out my previous post). The inspiration for it I found at a blog called Luv in the Mummyhood (the dress at that blog comes with a tutorial), but I used a different pattern, namely the same as I used for the dress I showed you a couple of days ago, but without the upper skirt and with a hole in the backside that forms a heart. I love that heart!



And if I make a dress for one daughter, the other one obviously wants exactly the same. So I made the first mentioned dress again, but in a bigger size. I’m out of yarn for my crochet blanket and the yarn shop can’t deliver what I need at the moment, so I have to fill my days with something else anyway. My oldest daughter is four years old and she wanted to choose the fabric herself, so of course it's all pink, pink and pink. Result here:

  8. I love both dresses. They are so girly. My two year old would love the skirt. Her favorite past time is to spin in circles. I host a weekly link party going on right now at www.thenymelrosefamily.blogspot.com/2012/05/whimsy-wednesdays-11.html and I'd love for you to join in.

  18. Darling dresses. The top one makes me think of many I made for my girls when they were very small. They had matching bloomers and they always looked so cute in them...some even had matching hats.
    I know your girls will just love them!
    HPS!
