Oh LaLa! Adelle's Floral Dress


his girlie had her Kindergarten Program last night and I realized the day before that she uh, didn't have anything to wear. She was so excited when I told her I was going to make her a dress. Perhaps I've been doing a little too much selfish sewing!
She's such a little fancy girl! The pattern comes from BurdaStyle (of course), Its their Sweetheart dress and I have to say that this is one of my favorite patterns I've ever used for a little girl dress. I made this dress in 3 hours and with only 1 yd of fabric!
 The fabric comes from Michael Levine, and was something I ordered to use for my Stylo Magazine spread. It ended up being back ordered so I didn't receive it till the deadline had already past. It's been sitting on my shelf waiting for a special reason to be used. This certain print is no longer available but the Bungalow line is available here! I ended up having to add some length to the skirt, because Adelle has such long legs and I'm so glad I did because the lace makes the dress! I love the scalloped edge, it's so 1920's!
Adelle was so proud of her fancy dress & her pearl necklace. She did a great job singing, Which is a huge achievement for her considering a year ago she had to wear headphones whenever children sang because it hurt her ears. I'm still trying to process the idea of her growing up. Does that really ever end?
If you haven't voted yet today, head on over to Indie Sew and vote for my dress please! There are so many amazing pieces that are being shared, but I'm crazy competitive, especially when prizes are at stake, and I'm trying my hardest to hold on to 3rd place!
