That’s what she calls it. She’s worn it every day for the past week, rotated out with various leotards, swim suits, dress-up gowns, tutus, and episodes of running around naked. Tonight, she even wore it to bed.
The saturated color is so striking, I don’t think I’ll get tired of seeing her in it. This dress was inspired by Lindsay at The Cottage Home. She and I share a love for beautiful fabric and sewing cute clothes. I absolutely adore the ruffle down the front with coordinating trim. Genius, Lindsay!
Did you make your tea party hats yet?

LOVE this dress!! Nicey Jane is probably one of my favorite fabric lines and the trim is a perfect match! I’m also loving the hair accessory – I need to make more matching bows/clips for the girls. If only there were more hours in the day.

It’s adorable! I Love it ♥ and the matching hair bow is really neat.

Adorable! Don’t you just love when they love something you’ve made them? I know I do. I haven’t made my tea party hats yet. I need to go to Michael’s to get some fancy flowers. Hopefully I can make it out there today because I’m dying to make myself one!

So when I clicked over I knew it was going to be special, but this is gorgeous Stef!! I would wear it everyday too. The colors…oh my, the colors…I love it! And your sweet little one could not be any prettier.

Love the Nicey Jane fabric and the colour suits your daughter to a ‘t’! A wonderful summer dress.
Too cute and very vintage pretty!

How wonderful to have your daughter appreciate your creative efforts by wearing this dress to death. LOL
As for sleeping in it, if you removed the ruffle, it looks very similar to a nightgown that I started for my oldest daughter when she was little (your fabric is MUCH prettier though). I couldn’t quite get the neckline to lay right, so it still sits in my sewing room unfinished. I’m hoping DD number 3 will get a chance to actually wear the finished product one day, but I’m not making any promises.
Hi! Beautiful dress! Did you just do a sort of modified peasant top? I want to do one exactly like this for an embroidered vintage pillowcase. Curious about the pattern shape of the “sleeve”.
