Dress Her Up!

Hey everyone!
Thanks to a bunch of extracurricular activities, end-of-year concerts and various other commitments, crafting time has been close to nil. Which makes this crafter-person a little bit cranky sometimes.

However, thanks to the upcoming fourth birthday of a dear little niece, I had to make time to sit at the sewing machine! I know, such a hardship!

I used this adorable e-pattern I purchased on Etsy (crafter warning: that site is WAY too addictive, almost as bad as Pinterest!) and it was quite easy to follow and assemble, and below is the result -- which turned out pretty darn cute, if I do say so myself!

Dress front.
 As this little princess is a blonde-haired, blue-eyed cutie, I decided to go with fabric in complementary purple shades and patterns. I think it turned out rather quite cute!

Next up, I want to make matching dresses for my girls out of a pair of gorgeous pillowcases I snatched up at our local thrift shop. And maybe a top for myself. And summer pjs for the girlies, and... Yeah. Let's not get carried away here, right? I know. Easier said than done!

Regardless, I'll do my best to be back soon!
Dress back.
