The Party Dress

My Miss T turned 2 on the weekend. I'm sure you all agree when I say, "Where did the time go?"

To celebrate, I made her this fabulous Party Dress. It is made from 100% silk, a steal from the Spotlight clearance sale at a mere $8/m. Bargain! I bought 1 m thinking that would be tonnes but it turns out I had to do some wiggling and jiggling, shorten the skirt & waist tie and had to line the front of the bodice with some teal jersey to make the the pattern fit. 

Don't you think it is perfect for a wee girl's birthday? Once she was all dressed up, we had somewhere (she can't be all dressed up with nowhere to go!!) so a quick call to our our good friends Candy & Lew and off to her first restaurant dinner!

  1. Very cute! I am getting ready to make this dress for my daughter to wear on Easter. I love seeing other people's versions.
