Birthday Dress

In about two weeks my little daughter will turn three years old! It only seems three weeks ago since she was born, time seems to pass so much faster since I have kids.

A couple of weeks ago I saw an adorable dress at Girl.Inspired and knew immediately it was The Dress for my daughters birthday. I used another pattern though, one I used for a variety of dresses, that all look different from each other, as you can see below.

The dress I made this time from the same pattern:



For the basic bodice I used dark blue silk, for the upper dress I used black lace.
I'm happy to say my daughter LOVES her  dress!

  1. Isn't it great when you find a pattern like this one that you can use more than once! The latest version is very grown up - no wonder your daughter loves it! Hope she has many wonderful times wearing it, before growing out of it!

    Happy New Year. Isobel Morrell: www.ColdhamCuddliescalling.blogspot.com

    1. Thank you, Janice! I made up the pattern myself. Just an upper part and a circle skirt. I cut the silk and the lace the same and before I stitched upper part and skirt together I stitched the lace upon the silk.
      Thanks for visiting! Liz
