summer vacation dress for my noodlehead

Here’s the first of the girls’ wardrobe for this summer.  I couldn’t resist!  I’ve been collecting fabrics here and there for things I wanted to make for them, but am just now getting to sew them up. 

This pattern is really great, I love how Dana gives you so many options and different variations on this dress, plus the shortie (can’t wait to try that one out). 

We’re ready for summer, bring on the clothes…
Natalie loves her new dress, it’s so HER!!!

{Willow Grove by Alexander Henry, Kei Honeycomb in white/orange both from fabricworm}

    I’m CRAZY about Willow. I’ve been trying to find a good excuse to buy it. It looks great as apparel fabric. The dress is so cute.

    Loverly. Does your noodlehead feel like a princess in it? I know my little girl would be spinning till she was dizzy.

    Wow, I love this dress too!!! It can’t compare to the Carter’s stuff I have for Elise. Homemade is a million times better! If only my mom still sewed.
