I made some dresses this week for the wee Hattonettes. I used the Flower Girl Dress from Weekend Sewing. Oh, such a great book. I can't wait to make some more garments from this book. Very inspiring.
This pattern seemed to run small... The size 3 bodice that I made for Delly ended up fitting Mimi, who wears 12-mo clothes. I made the size 4 for Delly, who normally wears size 2 or 3.
Instead of sewing the straps, I attached them just to the back and put snaps in the front, so I can extend the life of the dresses by making the straps longer as these rapidly growing get taller.
These dresses are for my great pally Moira's wedding tomorrow. I'm looking forward to the photographer getting some nice shots of them.
And here's some photographic evidence that Beany does in fact occasionally crack a smile.
