Norah Dress Pattern Tour

I had SO MUCH FUN sewing this dress and taking photos at our local park!  The Norah Dress by Mouse House Creations is a great a-line pattern with a ton of options!  In a time crunch?  Do what I did and make a sleeveless/collarless version!  The bare bones of the pattern and it looks so cute!
When I decided to join in the pattern tour I wanted to use my stash fabric for the dress and I knew that this Sock Monkey fabric was PERFECT!!!  It's busy so a dress pattern with a lot of pieces wouldn't work.  A nice clean pattern piece is just what this print needs!

I sized down the pattern for my itty bitty niece!  She's in 3-6months right now and it ended up being more of a tunic but fit great in the chest!  My mom came to the park with us and we had so much fun playing and being silly monkeys!

I'm in love with how some of these photos turned out!  I'm still developing my photo editing skills - any picture with a little baby can never be a bad picture!!!

Look at those eyes!!!  My brother has one adorable kid!  I predict there will be many more visits of Baby G on this blog!

Another addition to the dress was using my first wooden button!  When I ordered from Pick Your Plum I didn't realize they would be so huge!  I think it looks fun on this dress (and I obviously didn't use the lint roller before heading out the door,)

I want my little girl to STOP GROWING!  She had so much fun showing off her riding skills to Mimi!

And of course Mimi just looooooves playing with her grands!  Too bad they won't look at the camera!

Thank you so much for stopping by and checking out my version of the Norah!  I love that you can make this dress so chic and fun with the collars and sleeves but it can be just as fun as a basic dress silhouette!
