Bless her heart for being patient with me because she didn't get her dress until mid-January. Fortunately, her daughter's birthday isn't until April, so it all worked out fine. Every now and then, someone will ask me why I don't take orders more often or have an Etsy shop, and I think the real problem for me is deadlines. I'm terrible at deadlines. I guess my real job is another good reason. I know it may look like I was quite the productive sewist in January, but really, I was productive while I was out of school after Christmas.
Anyway, my friend chose the Oliver and S Bubble dress in two coordinating fabrics. I love the earth tones for this one--it's pretty and girlie without being over the top. So sweet for a first birthday!
I really love those buttons.
I added a herringbone stitch to the bodice to keep with the earthy vibe.
The bloomers are from the Tea Party dress pattern, and I usually hate making diaper covers, but I really like how this pair turned out. I think it's the tiny ruffle at the waist. :-)
