Whatcha Craftin’ ~Sew Along Dress

on February 19, 2013


I mentioned a while ago that I was participating in my first sew along. One of my favorite designers, Seamingly Smitten, had her first sew along on her blog in January. I was excited to participate, but it took me a few weeks to actually start sewing. I seem to put off sewing, even when I really want to sew something. It’s weird!

Anyway, I finally finished the dress a couple weeks ago and I was able to photograph it on a model last week. The model was so TINY!! She’ll be 3 this year and the dress was still a bit big on her. It was a size 1-2T.

The thing that threw me off on making this dress was the buttons. I put that part off for a few days. I would get all ready to sew the button part, but then I would get too overwhelmed and decide not to do it. I’m cool like that:)

I really love how it turned out, though!! The fabric I picked out to use for it was just TOO CUTE!! I really wish I had a girl to sew for!! since I don’t, I just do it for fun and sell whatever I make in my Etsy shop. I’d love to know what you think!


Isn’t this little girl just the CUTEST??!! I absolutely LOVE her curls!! I used to have curls like that when I was little. I really wish I still had them!



I just died when she did this all on her own during the session!! It was so perfect!!

I’m glad I finally finished the dress and took pictures of it on this cutie! I just love photographing kids. It’s so much fun! 🙂 I think I might tackle this dress pattern again, someday. The buttons actually weren’t that hard to do once I just gritted my teeth and did it. I hope next time around I’ll be able to do it all in one sitting. I love having the satisfaction of completing something in a short period of time. I wish it would happen more often! 🙂

Well, thanks for stopping by! I hope you have a wonderful Wednesday! I’d love to hear/see what you’ve been creating lately!!
