Musical Popover Dress

I think I mentioned in a previous post that I had one more Popover Dress cut out and ready to be sewn for Delilah.

Ready to see my little supermodel in training?!

The fabric is musical notes from Hobby Lobby and the pink is Kona cotton.

The bottom is pink ribbon with a little white stripe. I used the technique from the Lazy Days Skirt pattern. It's pretty easy to make a nice finished hem with ribbon and I love the extra detail and pop of color at the hem.

And one more picture. Do you think this little girl could do no wrong or what?!

I am seriously in love with my daughter.

The Popover Dress pattern is easy for a beginner (and available FREE from the lovely Oliver and S). My photo tute following the pattern is here. If you have a little girl and can sew at all -- this pattern is a really good start at making garments.

  4. So very cute!!! The dress and of course the adorable little cutie! Thanks for sharing at It's Party Time Thursday at PonyTails&FishScales!

  5. Your daughter is adorable! Just wanted to say thanks for the comment on my blog & extra tip. I chose to make the skirt that way because I absolutly hate threading elastic/other materials through things. I am sure it would be easier though.... maybe I will give it a try. Thanks again! -dez

  8. That last picture of your daughter melts my heart! She is adorable and nice job on the dress!

  9. I love this pattern from Oliver + S. They even just came out with a version for an 18" doll for when your daughter gets older. She is darling. Those curls are amazing.

  10. You have been busy! I love this fabric you chose and how the dress turned out. Are you going to follow it up with the doll version?


I love comments!
