I really wanted to wait until I had Christian's shirt done before I blogged about this dress but I couldn't wait! Christian went down for a nap so Eva Mae and I had a photo shoot and I still have time to write about it before he wakes up!!!!
This little girl has stolen my heart!!! She is so happy and adorable and I can't believe how big she's getting! She is really developing a fun personality - she's sweet, silly and definitely sassy! She's not afraid to tell her brother what she thinks - in her little pterodactyl voice! "BRRRAGH" is her favorite response when he tells her to do something!
The fabric I chose for their matching Easter outfits is from the Michael Miller line "Out to Sea" by Sarah Jane!
The pattern is the Goodship Dress which was included in the Sew Fab pattern bundle I advertised a few weeks ago! Did you grab it? If not, you can buy the pattern here! And make sure you check back next year when I will share the link for the next Sew Fab pattern bundle!
I love the way the pleated front plays "peek-a-boo" with the sweet nautical print! The sailor collar is what gets me!!! Have I mentioned how I love collars?! :)
Here's a view of the back. I originally wanted to embroider an anchor on the front but with three different fabrics some sewing friends and I decided it would be too much - the dress was perfect "as is!"
I hope Easter will be warm so we can see these cute and fat baby arms and legs!
The anchor hair clip is a felt embroidery design - they are so fun to make and I really want to build up my inventory so I can take them to craft shows, etc! I love using them for hair bows and clips for Eva Mae!
And to close out the blog post here is my VERY FAVORITE picture of Eva Mae!!! My little sailor girl, I love you so much!
