If anyone in our family looks like she belongs in a specific decade, it's little Noelle. With her hippie-chic blonde hair, she's a lock for a 70's chick. In other words (and probably more truthfully), her hair is very, uh, au naturel. :) Anyway, when I saw this vintage pattern on Pinterest, I immediately thought, Noelle needs something like that.
Now, one of my rules for kids' clothing is that it must be WEARABLE-- that means that it needs to be comfy and easily washed. Maybe that's why, once I overcame my fear of them, I have fallen deeply in love with knits. Noelle's dress is made of a super soft brown knit. Oh, and it's crazy cold here right now, so Noelle naturally couldn't just wear a mini-dress, so I lengthened it a little... though she'll be wearing it with leggings anyway. And I gave her long, big belled sleeves. She's a doll, ain't she? :)
I'm not sure what was on her hand, but clearly, it was gross. :)
