I have major spring fever. I mean CRAZY major spring fever. Now that it's been warm for two whole days, I want to sew a bazillion spring skirts, pants and dresses. Now if only my kids would sleep for 18 hours a day... Oh, reality, you are hard on me sometimes.
I did get to complete one little dress today, however, and I'm pretty happy with the result. I originally was doing a tutorial with it, but after I made some dumb mistakes, I had to scrap that. Don't worry, though. Riley will be getting a similar dress that will not have those same errors. And THAT will be tutorial-ed!
The back of this one turned out differently than I imagined, but I kind of fell in love with it. It's a knot dress, and I put the hole through which to "string" the straps through way at the outside of the back. Then I tied them together, pulling the slack of the back into a faux keyhole. This way, it expands really easily and it looks super cute!
She got a little ruffle around the neck because a ruffle never hurt anybody. :)
You'll notice that, up to this point, you haven't seen Noelle's feet. Well, I had to reveal her shoes. Sure, they don't really "go", but she knows how to rock the Pumas.
And for good measure, some sister lovin'. I love how the bubble flows all around Noelle when she sits down. So lovely!
