Farbenmix Nadya dress

Little Boozle 2011

Fabric: Fairy tip-toes by Tina Givens for Free Spirit (fussy cut)
Yoke lined with pink gingham from stash.
Ties and hem of pink velour ribbon.

Sweet little pattern comes together nicely.

It is a shorter dress for a winter pattern though.
I added hem allowance then didn't turn up the hem
and, given that the little goddess is quite tall,
it is shorter than I expected.

Plus I sewed it up after her bedtime so the sleeves are a little long
and will need to be taken up.

It is a whimsical dress that I hope will make her happy to wear.
Because it will make me happy watching her wear it.

I love everything about this divine little dress and I love your last post too. I am trying to breathe in and savour every moment of lasts that Miss Pepper is marching her way through. Its a full on time, that's for sure.

I think Kate said everything I was going to:)...about the dress and the growing pains.
It is a gorgeous dress, and a beautiful little girl.
Just this morning as my girl headed off to her class to give out cards and treats for Valentines - she said to me, "You don't have to walk me to class Mama, I'm not little anymore, I can do it myself." I just whispered, "I know."

I would never, in a million lifetimes, have chosen that fabric. Which just goes to show how important it is to keep one's mind open. It's GLORIOUS!
