Delilah Works The Runway

Hello friends!

Delilah's school had a holiday fashion show this year. We were asked to dress our kids in their best and watch them work the runway. I ALMOST sent Delilah in with her Cat in the Hat dress -- because she loves it SO MUCH. Not quite as much as her Muno dress, but close!

Instead, I dressed her in the MusicBox Dress (design by Oliver and S) that I sewed for her using a classic Liberty of London cotton lawn fabric.

Practicing her runway moves:

Delilah wears a 2T right now. I had sewn this dress in the 3T size, so she could wear it when the weather warms up. So it is a tad long. But no matter! The bodice fit perfectly over her turtleneck. She wore it with style and grace and she swished down the red carpet in her silver shoes!

We tried to get a nice picture of D in front of the Christmas tree. She was in a funny mood.

Now here's the supermodel shot. CHEEKBONES!

After the show, Delilah had to field some calls with other modelling offers. It was serious business.

Course, after the show, Delilah really let her hair down. What did they serve those little models backstage anyway?!?!

This pattern was lovely to sew. Oliver and S just has SUCH wonderful children's clothing patterns. Pretty clothing with clear instructions and quality construction. I love it! The Liberty fabric was purchased at Purl Soho.

::Dear modelling scouts - Delilah is going to focus on her education for right now. Thanks anyway!::

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Holidays!



  1. What a beautiful girl in a beautiful dress! I have got to try Oliver and S patterns one day soon, it seems a lot of people gave success with them!

  2. Too cute! Love the pattern, love the Liberty fabrics. Love, love, love! Have a great New Year!

  3. Love that fabric! I have never sewn with Liberty prints, but this is good inspiration to start.
