The pattern I chose to sew is the Maia Dress!  I fell in love with the cute ruffle panel in the front and all the piping!  It's been a while since I did piping -
I think the last outfit was Christian's Easter outfit in 2010!

The fabric I chose is a burgundy corduroy that was on sale for cheeeeap at Joann's last month! I love it when I can find deals like that!  I think it was $2-3 a yard?!  I've restricted myself from buying any more fabric until I can make my way through my stash! LOL!

I love how the white piping makes the corduroy pop!  Again, I used my stash....I thought about covering the piping with some homemade bias tape but I couldn't find any fabric that I loved enough to accent the corduroy.

I am a SUCKER for big Peter Pan collars!!!  I have several other patterns on my to-do list that use them!  I'm glad Eva Mae still has many more years to wear hand sewn outfits!
 I actually cut out a size 2T since she's in 18 months now.  I wanted it to be roomy enough that she can wear it for the next 3 months and I just took off some length at the bottom and waist.

I didn't do so hot of a job on the button placement - I think it gives that "My mommy made this for me" look!

She is all ready for the Holidays!!!  Thank you Peek-a-Boo Pattern Shop!
